Azerbaijan stops poultry imports from Netherlands


Azerbaijan's Food and Safety Agency has stopped the import of poultry, live birds and animal products from Limburg, the Netherlands, due to concerns about bird flu.


The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reported that a highly pathogenic disease bird flu has been found in Limburg's administrative-territorial unit.


Azerbaijan's Food and Safety Agency is taking measures in line with OIE's warning about infectious animal diseases that may enter the country's territory from other countries. As such, the agency has imposed temporary import restrictions on all types of live birds, poultry and animal products coming from Limburg.
