Thailand, the world's fourth largest poultry exporter, will face a ban on its poultry exports to the European Union (EU) if the government adopts vaccination to try to contain the outbreak of bird flu in Thailand, the EU's Office of Agricultural Affairs has warned.
According to a letter to agriculture permanent secretary Banpot Hongthong, any country hit by bird flu that uses vaccinations to try and stem an outbreak of bird flu would not be allowed to export poultry products to the EU.
This has already affected Italy, which decided to use vaccinations, said a Thai agricultural adviser based at the EU, Adisorn Promthep.
