Russia places partial ban on Hungarian poultry imports
Russia's animal health authority placed a ban on imports of Hungarian poultry products that have not been heat treated (at a temperature of 70 degrees Celsius or more), following an outbreak of bird flu in the southeastern regions of the country, Hungarian news agency MTI reported yesterday.
The ban is effective as of yesterday, March 4. MTI noted that an outbreak of bird flu occurred at a poultry farm in the Hungarian county of Békés in late February.
According to Attila Csorbai, the head of Hungarian Poultry Products Council, the ban affects a few thousand tons of Hungarian poultry.
