European Parliament rejects simplification of pig meat inspections
Posted on 25/09/2013
Eurogroup for Animals welcomes the adoption today by the European Parliament’s Environment Committee of a motion for a resolution rejecting the European Commission’s draft regulation to simplify pig meat inspections.
The rules would compromise public health and animal welfare by leaving some pathologies undetected.
As highlighted by the European Food Safety Authority’s Animal Health and Welfare Panel, we think that the current Regulation should remain unchanged pending the ongoing revision of the food and feed controls Regulation.
