WASHINGTON --Russia, after reporting the discovery of salmonella in a pork shipment, said it is banning imports from an Indiana company, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Pork from the Indiana Packers Corporation plant, in Delphi, Ind., will not be allowed into Russia "effective November 24," according to a listing published Tuesday on the FSIS Web site.

FSIS spokeswoman Amanda Eamich said the Russian government reported finding salmonella in a shipment sent by Indiana Packers Corporation, though that was not confirmed by the U.S. government.

Company officials could not be reached for immediate comment.

The salmonella discovery was not connected to the recent audit Russian officials performed on U.S. pork facilities, Eamich said.

Russia sent a team of auditors to 29 U.S. pork production facilities in October to make sure they met Russian import standards. The findings report from those audits has not been released, Eamich said.
