The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced this week that food products imported from European Union (EU) countries that had been detained in Canada, including soft cheeses, are now being released for sale. The products have been assessed as free of contamination from foot-and-mouth disease. Importation of food products from the EU will be allowed under certification of approved processing methods. However certain products are still affected by the suspension of imports for the risk of FMD, these include: - live ruminants - live swine - fresh (chilled or frozen) meat of ruminant or swine origin - fresh (chilled or frozen) products derived from ruminants or swine (other than milk/milk products) For further details visit the CFIA​ site.
