Roughly 15,000 metric tons of soybean animal feed from Argentina was confiscated by the Cyprus Agriculture Ministry after testing confirmed Salmonella contamination, according to reports.


The Ministry has already contacted farmers and mills who might have taken feed from the infected loads, and secondary testing will be conducted to confirm the initial results. If any animals are found to be infected by the feed, the affected farm's products will be confiscated by Veterinary Services, according to Ministry officials.
