The EU Agriculture Council today [Thursday] endorsed proposals to combat food-borne diseases like salmonella.

The two legislative proposals are designed to cut the incidence of food-borne diseases in the European Union. The proposals, adopted by the Commission in August of last year (see IP/01/1167) and backed by Parliament in May 2002 (IP/02/724), provide for a thorough revision of current EU legislation.

They are designed to improve protective measures against ‘zoonoses,’ diseases transmissible between animals and humans. Zoonoses include diseases that lead to numerous sick days, needless deaths and large public health costs in the EU every year like salmonella, campylobacter, listeria and toxin producing E.coli.
