Russia lifts EU vegetable ban.

By bne IntelliNews June 23, 2011
Russia and EU closed an agreement under which imports of EU-produced vegetables will be immediately resumed. As announced by Brussels, each vegetable-exporting country will have to provide special certification regarding E.coli 104 bacteria to Russia in a limited time. Should in 10 consecutive days no new E.coli contamination be registered in EU, this extraordinary certification system will be lifted as well. At the same time this week Chief Veterinary Nikolai Vlasov hinted at a possible ban of all livestock meat production from specific EU countries, namely Germany and the Netherlands.
