Russia bans meat imports from Brazil, Argentina
According to the watchdog, the ban is imposed because of the presence of bacterium listeria in imports from the Brazilian company JBS AVES LTDA, and the Argentine enterprise Madeka S.A.
Currently, 58 Brazilian poultry farms and 74 Argentine companies are authorized meat suppliers to Russia. However, imports from eight companies of each group are being banned for violating Russian veterinary standards. ■
