Biosecurity NZ monitoring reports of Indonesia Foot and Mouth outbreak

9th May 2022 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

The government is closely monitoring reports of a foot and mouth disease (FMD) outbreak in Indonesia, says Biosecurity New Zealand. 

The outbreak is yet to be formally reported to the World Organisation for Animal Health.

Biosecurity NZ said farmers should not feed untreated meat products to animals, especially pigs, and they should be keeping overseas visitors away from stock for a week after their last contact with animals overseas.

The agency said it was working to acquire more information from Indonesia and would also talk to its Australian counterparts.
