Processed Milk ‘Safe for Consumption’ in Qatar
Processed milk and dairy products are safe for consumption despite the foot and mouth disease scare, an official at the health ministry said on Wednesday.
“Drinking raw milk is extremely dangerous. Not only foot-and-mouth disease, but also another fatal disease - brucellosis - can be contracted from infected animals,” said the official, cited by the Gulf Times on Wednesday.
However, he said, dairy products are safe for consumption.
The disease was discovered in Saudi Arabia and UAE.
Qatar announced it was free from the disease – Albawaba.com.
