Russia is banning the import of finished poultry meat products from Italy's Province of Cremona (Lombardy region) due to cases of bird flu in that region, the Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Control Service (Rosselkhoznadzor) told Interfax.
Russia has banned the import of live poultry, incubated eggs, poultry meat and all types of poultry product not thermal-processed, as well as bird feed, over cases of bird flu in the Lombardy region Province of Brescia since April 20.
Those restrictions do not cover finished products.
