South Korea closes the market for American poultry and offal

South Korea on Sunday completely cut off imports of American chicken and by-products. The decision was made urgently, the motivation was voiced - quarantine measures.

Recall a little earlier, December 5, for the poultry and poultry products from the United States was closed the Russian market. As EastRussia wrote, at the same time, the motivation of the Rosselkhoznadzor also related to the issues of the veterinary quality of meat: according to the department’s statement, these restrictions are temporary in nature and must ensure the safety of poultry products that arrive on counters in Russia. In particular, to save Russian consumers from products containing tetracycline antibiotics.

South Korea has a louder argument today. According to documents published by the Department of Agriculture, the quarantine is designed to prevent the bird flu virus from entering the country, which, according to some reports, was found in wild birds in one of the US states.

Earlier, the Rosselkhoznadzor had already pointed to the lack of proper reaction from the American colleagues: the agency repeatedly asked US colleagues - the US Food and Agriculture Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) - to strengthen control, but could not achieve real action.
