Tyson Foods reacts to Russian pork shipments ban

Tyson Foods is seeking to quickly resolve the temporary ban placed on its products by Rosselkhoznadzor, the Russian Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitairy Surveillance Service, Bloomberg reports.

Tyson Foods , based in Springdale, Arkansas, will seek to quickly resolve a temporary ban on frozen boneless-pork shipments to Russia, the company said.

Russia barred imports of the product from Tyson Fresh Meats , a division of Tyson Foods, after laboratory tests found listeria in the meat. The temporary ban will take effect on Sept. 12.
