Three farms were given the all clear from Classical Swine Fever (CSF) on Friday night, and livestock movement restrictions which had been placed on them by the Government were lifted.
Tests for CSF by Government scientists were confirmed as negative.
Two of the three farms which had reported possible symptoms of the deadly pig disease were outside East Anglia, where the outbreak began on 8 August.
Given the all clear were:
a fattening unit in Norfolk;
a farm in Cheshire;
a farm in Derbyshire.
The farmers are being contacted immediately by MAFF officials.
