3 June 1998: POULTRYMEAT - Amendments to EC controls

Agriculture Council Meeting Minutes, 3 June 1998

Poultry meat

The following is an extract from the Minutes of the Agriculture Council Meeting held on 25/26 May 1998:

The Council has approved an amendment to Regulation (EC) n 1906/90 on certain marketing standards for poultry meat. Given the fact that poultry meat is being increasingly marketed in the form of pieces of poultry, the amendment extends the checking of the water content absorbed during preparation of meat, up to now limited to carcases only, to pieces of poultry as well.
