After a two-year battle, Great Britain has been declared free of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) and rinderpest, says the Agriculture Department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

The change frees the region consisting of England, Scotland and Wales from certain trade restrictions for the importation of ruminants and swine, fresh (chilled or frozen) meat and other products of cattle and swine into the U.S. from Great Britain.
