The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has announced its concurrence with the World Organization for Animal Health’s recognition of the following 14 countries as being of negligible risk for bovine spongiform encephalopathy: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, India, Korea, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Slovakia and Switzerland. This action will ease restrictions on meat imports from these countries. APHIS is not including France and Romania in this list, as it had proposed, due to the reporting of BSE cases in those countries.
