The Philippines government has lifted its ban on poultry and poultry products coming from Austria, including poultry meat, day-old chicks, eggs and semen, declaring that the products no longer threaten local livestock in terms of contamination from avian influenza.
The ban was issued in March 2006 after reports of low pathogenic avian flu in February of the same year. “[The] last finding was on April 16, 2006, and there has been no infection of poultry or other captive birds [observed],” said a memorandum order.
The avian flu episode was resolved on April 26, 2006, based on the official status report on the disease submitted by Austria to the World Organisation for Animal Health. Further evaluation of the Bureau of Animal Industry confirmed that the risk of contamination from importing poultry and poultry products from Austria has been declared as negligible.
