Experts of the State Veterinary Inspectorate have reportedly detected about 30 tons of products infected with bird flu virus in the Krasnodar region.
According to the regional Ministry of Agriculture, the products came from the Rostov region. The Inspectorate has issued orders on their withdrawal. The experts have already annihilated 611 kg of the dangerous goods.
Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance has also reported a bird flu case in the poultry sold in the Krasnodar region. The infected products were reportedly produced by Russia’s largest manufacturer of turkey meat – Eurodon Company from the Rostov region. It was the second case over the past several months. Several infective episodes are known to have happened in December 2016 at the company’s two production sites, both located in the Rostov region. All poultry was annihilated then. Eurodon estimated its losses at 1 billion rubles. In the Krasnodar region, over 1.9 million bird flu inoculations have reportedly been performed since the beginning of the year.
