The European Commission on Tuesday confirmed that measures imposed on France over foot-and-mouth disease would be relaxed and the sale and export of non-treated milk, meat and meat products would be allowed from most of the country, Reuters reports. Under a decision taken by the EU's Standing Veterinary Committee on March 27, restrictions on products will now only apply to the region of France affected by the second case of highly contagious animal disease, discovered on March 23 which are the northern departments of Seine et Marne, Seine Saint-Denis and Val-d'Oise. The Commission added that a ban on the export of all French livestock susceptible to the virus will remain in place until April 12.
