Food Safety News

Officials from Poland and the United Kingdom have met virtually to discuss the safety of Polish poultry meat after it was linked to several outbreaks.

Grzegorz Puda, Polish minister of Agriculture and Forestry, spoke remotely this past week with George Eustice, secretary of state for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Puda said he had taken direct charge of the issue of Salmonella in Polish poultry meat.

“Despite the difficult pandemic situation, Poland will take all measures to minimize and eliminate the UK’s concerns about the quality and safety of Polish poultry,” he said.

“Poland is ready to cooperate with the UK on sequencing of the Salmonella genome in poultry products.”
