Miguel Gularte, the CEO of Brazilian meat processor BRF SA, said on Tuesday confirmation of two highly pathogenic avian influenza cases in the South American nation is unlikely to spark trade bans as Brazil's sanitary status remains unchanged, as per guidelines of the World Organization of Animal Health (WOAH), Reuters reported

In comments about BRF's results for first quarter results, when the company posted a wider-than-expected loss, Gularte said the government and companies have taken all precautions to keep the highly contagious virus out of commercial farms.
