Britain Declared Free of Foot - And - Mouth

Britain Declared Free of Foot - And - Mouth
The world animal health organization declared Britain free of foot-and-mouth disease on Tuesday, clearing the way for costly international trade sanctions to be lifted, an official said.

James Pearson, head of the Paris-based International Epizootic Office (OIE) scientific and technical department, said a special panel had approved Britain's application to be classified as free of foot-and-mouth without the need for vaccinations.

In addition to being a symbolic victory for Britain in its nearly year-old campaign against the livestock illness, the OIE's decision effectively clears the way for British meat and dairy exports to resume to non-EU countries.
