Journal of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology Volume 14, Issue 1, June 2016, Prevalence and phylogenetic characterization of Listeria monocytogenes isolated from processed meat marketed in Egypt. Abstract Because of its high case fatality rate, listeriosis locates among the most frequent causes of death due to food-borne illness.
In this study, a total of 150 processed meat samples were collected from Giza Governorate, Egypt. Phenotypic and genotypic identification of Listeria monocytogenes was performed using PCR incorporating listeriolysin O virulence gene hlyA followed by DNA sequence analysis. L. monocytogenes was confirmed in 4% of each of beef burger, minced meat, and luncheon samples. Phylogenetic analysis showed that all the six Egyptian isolates have high homology with Colombian isolate (EF030606), except one Egyptian isolate which showed high homology with Indian isolate (EU840690).
ECDC 15/09/11 ECDC assessment on A(H5N1) Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Egypt and possible implications for human health in Europe. Highly pathogenic avian influenza A(H5N1) infections are continuing to occur in poultry and humans in Egypt, and there is now a concern that the veterinary control measures may be insufficient to keep a check on the continuing outbreaks in poultry, with potential implications for human health in Europe.
However, ECDC concludes in its rapid risk assessment, that there is no evidence of a significant change in the pattern of human illness and deaths related to A(H5N1) virus infections, and there are certainly no epidemiological data or analyses consistent with adaptation of these viruses to humans in Egypt. Although some limited virological analyses carried out may indicate that the risk of an A(H5N1) pandemic emerging could be higher in Egypt than other countries, the implications of these analyses are difficult to interpret. The first human cases in Egypt occurred in 2006. Read the rapid risk assessment: FAS USDA 06/09/16 Livestock and Products Annual_Cairo_Egypt_9-1-2016.

Food Policy Volume 51, February 2015, Characterisation of production, marketing and consumption patterns of farmed tilapia in the Nile Delta of Egypt. Open Access Highlights Production, marketing and consumption patterns of tilapia in Egypt were characterised.
Production constraints were feed prices, water quality and availability and land rent. The farmed tilapia value chain was short with little value adding. There was a lack of hygiene and potential post-harvesting contamination of tilapia. Tilapia was more frequently consumed in fish-farming community than in other communities. Abstract Egypt has one of the world’s largest aquaculture sectors which makes a significant contribution to income, employment creation and food security. Results showed that, more than half of producers were small scale, having a farm size of 10 feddan or less (1 feddan = 4200 m2).

EUROSURVEILLANCE 29/01/15 Multistate foodborne hepatitis A outbreak among European tourists returning from Egypt– need for reinforced vaccination recommendations, November 2012 to April 2013. A multistate outbreak of hepatitis A virus (HAV) among European travellers returning from Egypt occurred between November 2012 and April 2013.
A total of 14 European Union (EU)-European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries reported 107 cases. Twenty-one cases from six countries were affected by strains of sub-genotype IB harbouring identical RNA sequences, suggesting a common source outbreak. An international outbreak investigation team interviewed a number of cases with a trawling questionnaire to generate hypotheses on potential exposures. Some of these exposures were further tested in a case–control study based on a more specific questionnaire. Both trawling and case–control questionnaires aimed to collect cases’ vaccination details as well as epidemiological information. Introduction.

EUROSURVEILLANCE 02/04/15 Emergence of a novel cluster of influenza A(H5N1) virus clade 126.96.36.199 with putative human health impact in Egypt, 2014/15.
A distinct cluster of highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses of subtype A(H5N1) has been found to emerge within clade 188.8.131.52 in poultry in Egypt since summer 2014 and appears to have quickly become predominant.
Viruses of this cluster may be associated with increased incidence of human influenza A(H5N1) infections in Egypt over the last months. In Egypt, highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) influenza A(H5N1) viruses of clade 2.2.1 and their descendants have been circulating in poultry populations since 2006, causing sporadic human infections . Human influenza A(H5N1) infections in Egypt have been reported since the introduction of the virus in 2006 with 204 cases occurring until end of 2014 and a fatality rate of 35,8% in laboratory-confirmed cases reported to the World Health Organization (WHO).

MEAT SITE 12/09/14 USDA GAIN: Egypt Livestock and Products Annual 2014. 12 September 2014 USDA GAIN: Egypt Livestock and Products Annual 2014 Beef production is expected down in 2015, as slaughter is lower than the revised 2014 number, reflecting the expectation that the UAE’s cattle donation will not continue into the coming year.
Increased beef imports in 2015 are expected to offset the lower domestic slaughter. Beef consumption in 2015 is forecast to remain stable, though at higher levels than previous years. The government has become far more involved in beef marketing as new government programs offer beef at affordable prices through the food subsidy system and the government-owned consumer cooperatives. Production: Post forecasts total calf production at 1.78 million head in MY2015, up some 80,000 head or about 4.7 percent compared to the 2014 level. In MY2015, beef production is forecast to drop by roughly 6 percent at 300,000 MT compared to 320,000 MT in the current year.
Disease Control Government Establishes Minimum Slaughter Weight Consumption: LOC_GOV 11/03/14 Restrictions on Genetically Modified Organisms: Egypt. Egypt takes a permissive approach to genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and its public policy does not oppose growing, importing, and exporting genetically modified crops.
Egyptian activists have voiced their rejection of this policy. Egyptian laws do not contain restrictions on researching, producing, or marketing genetically modified crops and food products. The country also has no restrictions on releasing genetically modified organisms into the environment. A draft law on biosafety was not approved by the Egyptian Parliament.
I. In spite of Egypt’s announcement in 2009 that any agricultural import must have a certificate from the country of origin stating that the product is not genetically modified, the country takes a permissive approach to genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and its public policy does not oppose growing, importing, and exporting genetically modified crops.

However, the European Commission has extended the ban until 31 March 2012, due to the inefficiency of the procedures taken by Egyptian authorities to ensure the integrity of grain and plant exports. The ban will remain on items including rocket sprouts, sprouts of leguminous vegetables (fresh or chilled), soya bean sprouts, dried (shelled) leguminous vegetables, fenugreek seeds, soya beans and mustard seeds. Imports of fresh and chilled peas and beans will be allowed, as the EU ban on these items was lifted in October.
