The United States has requested that the World Trade Organization convene a panel on the European Union’s restrictions on poultry imported from the United States, according to a statement released by the Office of the United States Trade Representative. The statement requests that the panel examine whether the EU ban on poultry processed with pathogen reduction treatments is consistent with WTO obligations. The WTO will consider the request on Oct. 23 at its next meeting.
