MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will suspend the import of refrigerated pork and beef from Lithuania on Monday, the press service of Russia’s agricultural watchdog said.
As of July 15 Rosselkhoznadzor imposes a temporary ban on the import of refrigerated pork and beef produced by Lithuania’s three companies subjected to inspections in May following violation of veterinary-sanitary requirements of the Customs Union and Russia.
Rosselkhoznadzor also expressed concern over repeated detection of traces of banned or hazardous substances in animal products, the press service said.
Lithuania, in turn, developed a plan of action to eliminate violations exposed by Rosselkhoznadzor.
“The plan envisages concrete activities, on which efficiency we will brief the Russian side in a month,” the head of Lithuania’s food and veterinary service, Jonas Milius, said.
Lithuania’s food and veterinary service also agreed with Russia’s requirements as concerns additional laboratory tests to examine traces of banned substances and microbiological contamination in meat exports.
