Brazil notified the European Union’s Food Service Authority last week that it had found no traces of salmonella in poultry exports.
The statement was issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply in Brazil. It had been informed in early May that irregularities had been found in Brazilian poultry exported to the EU.
European authorities insisted that Brazilian refrigeration must improve product inspections and hire more inspectors. The Brazilian ministry said that after a thorough check, no traces of the typhimurium or enteritidis, two types of harmful salmonella, had been found.
The statement mentioned that new measures had been adopted in Brazil to improve sanitary supervision and prevent salmonella from infecting poultry exports to Europe.
