From tomorrow, the supply of poultry from the United States to Russia will cease
The Russian market is completely closed for American chicken and offal. The measure is taken urgently, as early as 5 December, poultry imports from the United States will be banned.
At the same time, Rosselkhoznadzor's motivation concerns questions of veterinary control: according to the agency's statement, these restrictions are temporary and must ensure the safety of poultry products that arrive on shelves in Russia. In particular - to save Russian consumers from products containing tetracycline antibiotics.
The Rosselkhoznadzor report says: "We are forced to state the continued detection of residues of harmful and prohibited substances in US poultry products, including the presence of antibiotics of the tetracycline group, which is a gross violation of the requirements and norms of the Customs Union and indicates insufficient control by the US veterinary service" .
The department insists that it has repeatedly asked its colleagues from the US - the US Food and Agriculture Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) - to strengthen control, but it could not achieve real action. The Rosselkhoznadzor report notes that negotiations with FSIS in search of options for resolving the current situation may take place after the New Year.
Tetracycline antibiotics are used to treat infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract and urinary system in young animals of agricultural animals and birds, including: secondary infections in viral pneumonia, colibacillosis, transport fever in calves; bacterial enteritis, respiratory tract infections in lambs, kids; enzootic pneumonia, hemophilia, MMA syndrome, atrophic rhinitis, pleuropneumonia, leptospirosis, bacterial enteritis in pigs; infections caused by Escherichia coli, cholera, streptococcosis, staphylococcosis, pseudotuberculosis, mycoplasmosis, infectious sinusitis, bacterial complications in viral infections in birds.
