Denmark allows poultry back outside as bird flu threat lessens

April 10 (Reuters) - Denmark will on Wednesday lift an order to keep poultry flocks indoors as the threat of bird flu has lessened, the Ministry of Environment and Food said in a press release on Monday.

Denmark was officially declared free of bird flu in February and has since reestablished exports to a number of countries that had previously introduced trade restrictions on Danish poultry.
