DA bans poultry imports from The Netherlands
The Department of Agriculture (DA) has temporarily banned the importation of poultry and other poultry products from The Netherlands amid reports that the European country was hit with bird flu.
In a memorandum, the DA cited a report from the World Organization for Animal Health saying that The Netherlands was hit by H5N6, a highly pathogenic bird flu strain which also hit poultry farms in the provinces of Pampanga and Nueva Ecija in August last year. —Karl R. Ocampo
