WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Oct 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has lifted restrictions against imports of Canadian canola meal from a Bunge Ltd BG.N plant in Altona, Manitoba, easing a situation that has sharply cut Canadian exports to the United States over health concerns.
The FDA has removed the plant from its online list of plants that are on import-alert status due to concerns about salmonella bacteria in animal feeds, Bunge spokeswoman Deb Seidel confirmed to Reuters on Friday.
The restrictions allowed U.S. inspectors to detain shipments without physically examining them.
