Russia may resume US poultry imports

Onishchenko: Progress in talks ‘stunning’

Gennady Onishchenko, Russia’s chief sanitary inspector, told a press conference that “American chicken has a chance of returning to the Russian market” after “stunning” progress in recent trade talks between the two countries, Reuters reported.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has called the talks constructive. There is no word on whether U.S. producers have agreed to stop using chlorine washes to clean poultry carcasses, a practice that Russia restricted earlier this year, resulting in a stoppage of U.S. poultry imports.

In related trade news, Russia will resume U.S. pork imports after producers agreed to meet certain Russian regulations related to food safety, according to Reuters.
