Abstract

Emerging and reemerging pathogens of food animals, such as Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) and H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), have the potential to disrupt the supply of food commodities. In the event of an FMD outbreak in the United States, permit requests to move pigs and pork products must be supported by risk assessments (3).

Emerging and reemerging pathogens of food animals, such as Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) and H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), have the potential to disrupt the supply of food commodities. In the event of an FMD outbreak in the United States, permit requests to move pigs and pork products must be supported by risk assessments (3).
