EU to ban meat from poorly handled animals

The European Parliaments agriculture committee is considering proposals to ban the sale of meat from livestock that has suffered from poor welfare and has been produced in the EU. Members of European Parliament pushed for a swift draft  of a new ‘action plan on the protection and welfare of animals’ for 2011-2015, stating “It should prevent “any producer (offering) animal products on the internal (EU) market, which do not comply with the conditions laid down by the general law.”The detailed resolution was less specific about imports – because World Trade Organisation (WTO) cases have prevented governments banning imported products on the basis of animal welfare concerns.
