French poultry products will be back again to UAE markets after being banned on 26 February 2006 over reported cases of bird flu, a top UAE municipal official announced yesterday. Jassim Darwish, Secretary General of the UAE Municipalities, said after a meeting of the secretariat general board that the decision to allow re-entry of the French poultry products was taken on recommendation by the Vet. Control Committee.

'The Committee in a memorandum raised to the secretariat general recommended that the ban on the French poultry products be scraped, Darwish said.

The board meeting, presided over by Acting Chairman of Dubai Municipality Hussein Lootah, discussed a number of civic issues dealing with food, hygiene, environment and veterinary. Darwish added that the board gave its nod to a proposal forwarded by the Higher Colleges of Technology to conduct a food survey in association with the US Research Triangle Institute International (RTI).

The meeting, which brought together all directors of civic bodies , approved a report by the national food safety committee banning use of plastic cups made up of solid polystyrene in serving hot drinks and replaced them with Styrofoam-manufactured cups. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
