Return to       About vaccination against foot and mouth

In a letter dated 9th November 2004, the Director General of the OIE, Bernard Vallat, wrote the following:

"Following my letter dated April 4th 2004 on the food safety of products from FMD vaccinated animals, you will find enclosed the comments of our experts in the world reference laboratory of the OIE on F|MD.

In short, the experts consider that at this stage ther are no reasons to identify products from vaccinated animals because FMD vaccines do not differ from those largely used against other diseases that may affect the same animals, without any adverse effect on consumers. They also are of the opinion that the measures currently applied to the European Union suffice to guarantee food safety to consumers."
