Russia bans pork from Indiana plant on salmonella concerns
                    

 

Russia has suspended pork imports from an Indiana company after detecting salmonella in a shipment, according to the US Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

 

Pork exports to Russia from the Indiana Packers Corporation plant in Delphi, Indiana, will be suspended as of November 24, said the FSIS.

 

The salmonella discovery was not linked to the recent audit Russian officials conducted on US pork facilities, said FSIS spokeswoman Amanda Eamich.

 

Russia sent a team of auditors to inspect 29 US pork production facilities in October to ensure they meet Russian import standards.
