Russian Authorities Seize 35 Tonnes of Illegal US Poultry

26 March 2015

RUSSIA - Russian veterinary authorities in the Tver and Pskov regions have detained a train with seven containers of frozen poultry quarters that were illegally being imported from the US.

The 35 tonnes of poultry meat that was certified from a US plant had certification papers from a plant in Kazakhstan.

The meat had a veterinary certificate for export of US poultry meat and poultry meat products to Kazakhstan as well as Latvian certificates.

The meat was seized because of the discrepancies in the paper work and concern over advanced issuing of veterinary certificates.
