MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor may impose a ban on the import of poultry meat from Brazil if it finds chlorine in its export items.
“We are warning our Brazilian counterparts that if the use of chlorine in Brazil’s poultry meat is proved, we will have to ban the import,” Rosselkhoznadzor chief Sergei Dankvert said on the sidelines of the Russian agricultural exhibition Golden Autumn 2013 on Wednesday.
The watchdog’s inspectors will fly to Brazil to monitor its poultry farms on October 20, Dankvert said, adding “if the time is left, we will inspect pork and beef, too.”
