MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s consumer rights protection authority (Rospotrebnadzor) has imposed stricter control over meat products imported to the country from the United States. The move came after reports of E. coli infection in U.S.-made minced meat.
“According to official information from the United States Department of Agriculture, the company Tyson FreshMealsInc recalls about 60 tons of ground beef manufactured at the company’s plant in the city of Emporia, Kansas, over possible contamination with E. coli,” Rospotrebnadzor said in a statement
“In this context, Rospotrebnadzor has instructed its territorial agencies to toughen control over meat products coming from the United States,” the statement said. Rospotrebnadzor also informed relevant authorities in Belarus and Kazakhstan an asked to take similar measure.
According to Ohio health authorities, enteric infections cases after eating these products were reported in mid-September. E. coli presence in ground beef was proved in laboratory tests on September 27. The number of those who contracted the disease is being specified.
