RUSSIA - In connection with the information published in some regional RUSSIA - The Russian food safety authority Rosselkhoznador has hit back at claimes that pork tainted with African Swiner Fever has appeared on the market.

The rebuttal follows claims in the media that ASF infected pork was detected in the Krasnoyarsk Krai.

However, Rosselkhoznador said the claims are untrue and emerged from the publication of unchecked data that it says it has traced back to infromation issued by the City Information Portal Krasnoyarsk-Times web-site.

Rosselkhoznadzor said that no ASF infected meat was detected in Krasnoyarsk Krai and the Rosselkhoznadzor did not give any such notification.

Measures designed to stop the illegal meat circulation were stepped up in the Krasnoyarsk Krai as in many other regions of the Russian Federation.

The measures were enhanced to prevent the spread of ASF but only as a precautionary measure.
