2011.06.27 | Official: Russian watchdog may ban meat imports from GermanyRussia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Oversight has not ruled out imposing a ban on imports of German meat products due to recent outbreaks of E. coli in the European Union (E.U.), the regulator’s Deputy Director Nikolai Vlasov said Tuesday, RIA Novosti reported.
“All will depend on the dynamics (of the outbreak) in Germany. If the situation becomes catastrophic, a ban is possible,” he said, adding that it is too early to discuss such measures.
Vlasov said that the federal service believed the infection originated at a German livestock farm, rather than a vegetable farm, as stated by the E.U.
On June 2, Russian authorities introduced a ban on the import of vegetables from the E.U. On June 10, President Dmitry Medvedev said the ban would be lifted when the E.U. provided guarantees on the safety of its vegetables.
The E. coli outbreak has killed about 40 people.
