Russia approves US pork facilities for export

USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said last week that Russia has added more pork and poultry facilities to its list of eligible exporters.

L&K Packing International, a Schleswig, Iowa-based cutting/packaging plant and cold storage facilities owned by Chicago-based Ashland Cold Storage and Richland, Miss.-based Millard Refrigerated Services are now authorised to export pork to Russia.

In addition, poultry originating from Ashland Cold Storage and House of Raeford-Wallace Division in Teachey, N.C., can be exported to Russia.
