29-11-2010 | |

The Russian Federation ended a ban on pork imports from a Tyson Foods plant in Iowa, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported.

The Tyson Fresh Meats plant located in Columbus Junction, Iowa, is allowed to export pork that was produced as of the end of November to Russia, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a report on its website.

Pork produced before the end of November is ineligible for shipment, the USDA said, without providing a reason for the ban.
