Kuwaiti Municipality's Food Safety Commission has recommended lifting the ban on white meat imports from Italy, India, Turkey, Romania, and Bulgaria.
The decision was taken upon a resolution from the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources that was also based a report from the World Organization for Animal Health which declared these countries H1N1 free areas, said the Commission Head Fahad Al-Msabbehi said. Al-Msebbehi, however, noted that the commission has ordered a ban on white meat imports from two African countries, namely Ghana and Ivory Coast, for have H1N1 cases.
The commission also postponed a decision on lifting the ban on the importation of livestock meat from the EU countries due to the spread of the mad cow disease. It assigned the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources to conduct a thorough report about the lifting the ban on white meat importation from America.
