Canadian Announcement on HPAI Exclusion Refers Only to Zones

Some confusion and apprehension followed the Monday July 18th announcement by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency regarding exclusion of all but fully cooked poultry products from 21 states recording cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza, (HPAI).


The advisory stated that the release specifying products and states, referred to zones within states where cases were diagnosed and not entire states. Canada and the U.S. operate under a reciprocal agreement signed in 2013 that recognizes each Nation’s control measures that are similar. Imposition of quarantines and release of zones are in accordance with agreed terms and generally follow WOAH recommended protocols.
