Iraq to likely impose ban on Ga., Ky. chicken

Iraq is apparently set to impose a ban on poultry imports from Georgia and Kentucky because of detections of low-pathogenic avian influenza in commercial flocks in both states.

In what is a confusing situation,Iraq has already imposed a ban on product from Alabama, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, and officials are expected to ban Georgia and Kentucky at the next meeting of its Council of Ministers, according to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

Congo lifts U.S. ban

The Ministry of Commerce in the Republic of Congo has issued a decree that rescinds the nationwide avian influenza ban on U.S. poultry imports for avian influenza free zones, which our government is interpreting as production other than from Tennessee.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) received the notice on Friday and immediately proposed revised language to the Food Safety and Inspection Service so that the export requirements for Congo could be revised in the Export Library.

Perdue’s confirmation by Senate as Ag Secretary scheduled

Sonny Perdue’s big day apparently is here. Finally.
The former governor of Georgia has been awaiting confirmation as the next secretary of agriculture. According to the schedule, the Senate will vote April 24 on his nomination.

The vote has been a long time coming. Other Cabinet nominees of President Donald Trump have long since been approved and have started their jobs, but Perdue has had to wait more than three months.

Despite the delay, it is expected that Perdue will be confirmed.
