EU-Brazil "poultry war" to be discussed at WTO

Brazil looks to find a way to solve the dispute with the EU over poultry products such as salted chicken meat and turkey meat with pepper. Both products are banned in the EU market and Brazil hopes to settle this dispute at the World Trade Organization (WTO). Brazil's Foreign Ministry said it hopes the talks will lead to a friendly resolution to what it called "discriminatory sanitary controls for the detection of salmonella" that create "unjustified barriers" to international trade, informs Reuters. Brazil claims the application by the EU of salmonella food safety criteria on poultry meat violates the rules of the WTO's Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures.
"Brazil considers that there is no technical or scientific evidence to justify the application, by the European Union, of stricter microbiological criteria for the detection of salmonella in salted chicken meat and turkey with pepper, in comparison to fresh poultry meat," said the document sent to WTO.
