Panama and Peru discontinue imports of meat from Colombia

The restrictions are due to a new outbreak of FMD in the Republic of Colombia.

Friday 30 June 2017 (1 years 22 days ago)

Peru's Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MINAGRI) reported that the National Animal Health and Agri-food Quality Service (SENASA) has discontinued imports of cattle, swine and their products (meat, semen and embryos) from Colombia due to the new outbreak of Foot-and-mouth disease in that country. The duration of the import restrictions is 180 calendar days and may be extended or reduced according to the information and control measures implemented in Colombian territory.

Peru was declared free of the disease by the World Organization for Animal Health —OIE— in 2013. For the past 13 years, not a single case of the disease has been recorded in Peru. Since May 2013, only animals in the northern border area were being vaccinated for security reasons, and this practice stopped at the beginning of 2017.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA) of Panama, through the National Directorate of Animal Health, has reported that the country maintains a passive and active surveillance, in accordance with the health security protocol, for transboundary diseases (including vesicular ones). This is the reason for the ban on the import of cloven-hoofed animals and their by-products, including live animals, semen and embryos, from the Republic of Colombia.
