Norway – Handling of Salmonella in EU-EEA beef and pork (traded)

Mattilsynet

In the winter and spring of 2021, several Salmonella finds were made in meat from Germany. On the basis of this, in 2021 the Norwegian Food Safety Authority will prioritize inspections of establishments that handle meat from EU / EEA countries (traded meat). The Norwegian Food Safety Authority will require the company to be able to verify that consignments of traded meat meet the conditions in the salmonella guarantee.

Companies in Norway must be able to verify that consignments of traded meat from EU / EEA countries meet the conditions in the Animal Hygiene Regulations (salmonella guarantee). This can be done by either referring to good enough historical documentation about the shipping business abroad, or increasing the sampling of traded meat in Norway.
