Russians Ban Poultry from Three U.S. Processors

Ban goe into effect next week.

Effective March 27, Tyson Foods' plant in Cumming, Ga., Peco Foods' plant in Canton, Miss., and Sanderson Farms' plant in Hammond, La. will not be able to sell poultry to Russia. USDA has confirmed the reason is residue findings, possibly from antibiotics or anti-parasitics. USDA has requested and is awaiting additional information from Russian authorities.

USDA spokeswoman Bryn Burkard told "Meatingplace" that USDA will then work with the establishments to determine if in fact the antibiotics and anti-parasitics were used and will then take appropriate actions.
