MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russia has imposed temporary restrictions on imports of poultry from Mexico, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision said on Thursday.
The restrictions apply to imports of live poultry, incubating eggs, feathers, poultry meat and all other kinds of poultry not subjected to thermal processing below 70 degrees Celsius, poultry fodder and equipment used for poultry slaughter and processing.
The restrictions were imposed after mass incidents of bird flu caused by a highly toxic virus H7N3 were registered in Mexico.
Mexico accounts for 16. 5 million poultry species, including 3.4 million poultry species infected. A total of 2. 5 million poultry species have already been liquidated.
