Food Safety Authority Eases Bird Flu Restrictions in Three Counties


Hungary’s food safety authority (NEBIH) has eased bird flu-related restrictions in Bács-Kiskun, Békés and Csongrád-Csanád counties in the south 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 from July 3 if there is no recurrence, NÉBIH said. Restrictions in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and Hajdú-Bihar in the east will remain in place at least until early July, NÉBIH said.
