Russian EU food import ban to include offal and bone meal

Russian EU food import ban: Rosselhoznadzor, Russia’s veterinary watchdog, has announced that it is to impose a ban on the import of offal, meat trimmings and bone meal from the EU starting on October 21. Rosselhoznadzor has repeatedly expressed complaints about the quality and safety of beef by-products entering Russia from Austria, Hungary, Germany, Denmark, Italy and Poland, which it claims have contained traces of listeria, lead, tetracycline, salmonella, chloramphenicol and cadmium.
