Ebola virus has been found in bush meat, which is meat derived from wild animals native to African forests, including fruit bats, gorillas, chimpanzees, and duikers. As EFSA terminologist, I would suggest adding the term "bush meat". For further reference please see: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/press/news/141104a.htm The article is also available in DE, FR and IT languages.
