Russia banning imports from 19 US chicken plants

29-08-2008 | |

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has announced that imports from 19 US chicken plants will be banned.

It has been reported that the chicken plants will no longer be allowed to export chicken products to Russia because they ignored warnings from Russian inspectors who examined poultry companies in 2007.
It was also reported that another 29 US plants would receive warnings.
