China poultry smuggled to European Union

Illegal exports of food to the EU from China escape all official controls and can therefore pose an animal- or public-health risk, as they escape all official health and quality checks.

According to the Commission's health and consumer protection spokesman Philip Tod, the EU's Rapid Alert System was notified of six cases of illegal exports of poultry from China in 2006 - at a time when the bird-flu outbreak was at its height.
