Russia may ban all pork from Belarus over ASF: watchdog

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia could ban all pork imports from Belarus after it found African swine fever (ASF) in some meat products, Russian agricultural safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said on Thursday.

The watchdog said it was imposing temporary restrictions on the import of meat products from the Grodno meat plant in Belarus after finding ASF in its goods. The restriction was due to enter force on Friday, it said.
