Abstract

The former 15 EU countries have been spending an estimated 570 million Euro yearly to inspect for Trichinella in pigs primarily raised on industrialized farms with negligible little risk of acquiring the parasite; human trichinellosis in the EU is generally caused by game meat, imported horse meat, or meat from local pigs raised outdoors.
