France delays ban

France has backed off a ban on imports of pigs, semen and embryos from Canada because of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus.

It says it will wait for the European Union to decide how to deal with the issue.

Late last week France also announced a ban on imports from the United States, Mexico and Japan.

The ban did not extend to pork and foods containing pork.
