RUSSIA - Specialists of the Rosselkhoznadzor Administration detected law violations at temporary storage warehouse "Sirius" during border veterinary control.

When inspecting a consignment of frozen pork and frozen pork fat imported from Germany (19.9 tons) it was determined that some labels attached to frozen pork had a name of the plant that was not mentioned in the veterinary certificate.

The whole consignment imported with violations of the Veterinary Law was sent back to the consignor with a non-manipulation declaration.

It is the second time when an imported consignment has been sent back to Germany over recent days. As reported, a consignment of poultry meat was sent back, since a part of the consignment was produced by the plant subject to temporary restrictions on import.
