Czech Republic plan anti-salmonella campaign
The Czech Republic's Veterinary Administration
(SVSÃ‰R) is planning an anti-salmonella vaccination campaign, in wake of the
European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) report.
The campaign was prompted by a EFSA report stating that 62% of poultry farms
in the Czech Republic were infected with salmonella making it one of the
riskiest places in the European Union to eat an egg.
Petr Å atrÃ¡n, salmonella control expert with SVSÃ‰R, the EFSA figures refer to
facilities and not the number of laying hens or eggs infected.
added that SVSÃ‰R is currently negotiating with the Ministry of Agriculture
regarding the exact terms for the vaccination campaign.
