The aim of the move was to prevent the spread of African Swine Fever (ASF) into Finland, it said.
ASF is a highly contagious virus that does not infect humans, but it could endanger Finnish pork production. It has already spread into Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.
Smoked or air-dried meat
The virus survives well in meat products, Evira said, and can be found in smoked or air-dried meat.
Evira also recommended avoiding hunting trips in affected areas, and hunters who have already made hunting trips should clean and disinfect all their equipment thoroughly.
