Rosselkhoznadzor is concerned about the results of lab tests showing ractopamine, a drug used in food animals for growth promotion, in batches from some Brazilian enterprises. The growth hormone banned in Russia was found in pork and poultry. Seeking a return to the Russian market, Brazil earlier gave guarantees that it was not using ractopamine in production designed for the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
Brazil resumed pork supplies to Russia in March 2014, supplying 36,600 tons worth $136.5 million between March and May, according to the Federal Customs Service. Russia banned pork imports from Brazil in 2011 after ractopamine had been found in meat. The lifting of restrictions was seen as a compensation for undelivered pork from the European Union amid an outbreak of African swine fever.
