MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) has revealed poor-quality meat products supplied from Brazil, Rosselkhodnadzor’s press service reported on Thursday.
“Listeria has been found by laboratories while specialists are examining Brazilian frozen beef,” the press service reported.
On July 6, temporary restrictions were imposed on supplies of products with listeria - the bacterium that causes the infection listeriosis.
In this regard, Rosselkhoznadzor decided to inform the Brazilian state veterinary service on the examination results of produce delivered before the restrictions officially came into force.
Listeria is an acute infectious feral herd disease of humans and animals triggered by Listeria monocytogencs bacteria. Humans get infected from animals through consuming meat, eggs and milk contaminated by listeria, through infected arthropods’ bites, as well as breathing listeria in. The disease emerges sporadically in different European, African, American countries, in Australia and sometimes in the ex-Soviet republics. After the incubation period that lasts not less than two weeks the disease develops and progresses in different clinical forms.
