UK meat ban lifted.

The ban has been lifted on imports of certain meat products from the United Kingdom, reports Caribbean Net News (May 22, 2008). A ban was placed on these products in Aug. 2007, in the wake on an outbreak of Foot & Mouth Disease there. The ban on beef and beef products, which has been in place since the early 1990s, has also been lifted. Senior Veterinary Officer Dr Mark Trotman said the government has lifted restrictions on the commercial importation of all live cattle, pigs, sheep, goats as well as meat and meat products derived from these animals. Importers may now apply to the Ministry of Agriculture's Veterinary Services Dept. for permits. Trotman cautioned that: "All commercial shipments of live animals and animal products must be accompanied by an Export Health Certificate issued by the UK's Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)".
