Dear Food Standards Agency,

I am interested in Brucella suis.

Please could you tell me if:

1. There have been any recent 2023 - 13.03.2024 incidents related to Brucella suis-suspected contamination of pig-products destined for the human or pet consumption market (or that reached those markets)?

2. If so, how many incidents are ongoing and how many are now closed?

3. If so, what countries' pig products are implicated in these incidents?

Many thanks for your time.

Yours faithfully,

DR Buckley
