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
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.
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.
