In a statement made Wednesday (Mar. 29), European Union (EU) Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis said the EU is currently studying stricter measures on the entry of Brazilian products into its member countries. One of the measures, he said, would be tightening up document checks.
Andriukaitis argued that the scandal involving Brazilian meat casts light on the importance of restoring the confidence, credibility and predictability of control systems, not to mention the need for prompt action in cases such as the one under Operation Weak Flesh.
“We need a control system that's official and independent. We need to have total confidence and set up a scheme for immediate response in case a new crisis arises,” he said.
