Russia suspends U.S. pig imports over virus fears

MOSCOW, May 29 (Reuters) - Russia said on Thursday that it was suspending pig imports from the United States due to concerns about outbreaks of the deadly porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv).

The suspension takes effect on Friday, Russian state agricultural oversight agency Rosselkhoznadnor said in a statement. (Writing by Steve Gutterman; Editing by Pravin Char)
