Lithuania: mesures against Classical Swine Fever lifted

The EU Member States endorsed a Commission proposal to repeal the protection measures adopted after outbreaks of Classical Swine Fever (CSF) in June and July in Lithuania.

Thursday 8 September 2011 (6 years 5 months 16 days ago)

The EU Member States endorsed a Commission proposal to repeal the protection measures adopted after outbreaks of Classical Swine Fever (CSF) in June and July in Lithuania.

The proposal, adopted by the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCoFCAH), foresees that all restrictions on trade of live pigs, pork and pork products from Lithuania to other Member states and third countries are lifted.

CSF in Lithuania was first diagnosed in the Jonava district within the Kaunas County on 1 June in a holding of 16,000 pigs. A series of outbreaks were consequently recorded during the following week. These outbreaks prompted the Commission to adopt measures, including requirements on additional testing ( Commission decision 2011/508/EC). The Lithuanian authorities have now provided evidence that all the required checks have been carried out.
