Belarus Bans Meat Import from Bulgaria over FMD
Belarus has announced a temporary ban on meat import from Bulgaria because of the outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in the Bulgarian Southeast.
The Belorussian Agriculture Ministry has announced that the ban is imposed on sheep, goal, beef and pork meat import from Bulgaria.
Similar measures have been imposed in Ukraine and Russia where meat and animal products were also temporarily banned over FMD.
Hundreds of domestic animals have been slaughtered this month after the first FMD case in Bulgaria was found in the village of Kosti on December 30, 2010.
The virus was first discovered in a wild hog, shot during hunting in Kosti. A second case was discovered January 17 in the nearby village of Rezovo. All infected animals have been euthanized and the village has been put under 3-month quarantine.
