PARIS, Feb 22 (Reuters) – France adopted a decree on Tuesday banning imports of meat from animals treated with growth antibiotics – a practice prohibited in farming within the European Union since 2006 – in a move that would mainly affect the poultry market.

France is anticipating an EU-wide measure that had been due to enter into force late last month but was delayed by missing legislation on sanitary checks, the farm ministry said in a statement.
