Food safety authority eases bird flu restrictions in three counties

Hungary's food safety authority (NEBIH) has eased bird flu-related restrictions in Bacs-Kiskun, Bekes and Csongrad-Csanad counties in the south and northeast of the country, after no infections had been detected since early June.

Inspection of the areas hit by the infection will continue, with slaughtering only possible under strict regulation, NEBIH said on its website on Monday.

Restrictions will be lifted completely as of July 3 if there is no recurrence, NEBIH said.

Restrictions in other farms in Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg and Hajdu-Bihar in the east will remain in place at least until early July, NEBIH said.
