EU Prohibits Import of Seeds and Plans from Egypt
10/21/2011

The European Union has extended through March 2012 the ban on imports of Egyptian seeds and plants in the wake of a discovery of deadly E-coli bacteria in fenugreek (plant) imported from Egypt early this year. The ban was first imposed last July to prevent the spread of the plant disease.

The ban was supposed to be lifted on October 31 but Brussels has decided to extend it because the EU has considered the measured taken by Egypt to be “unsatisfactory.”
