E.Coli Infected U.S. Beef Withdrawn

The Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Inspection Service, or Rosselkhoznadzor, is withdrawing a batch of U.S. boneless beef after laboratory tests showed that it was infected three strains of E. Coli.

An infection with Shiga toxin-producing strains of E. coli can lead to the development of life-threatening hemolytic uremic syndrome, a statement on the watchdog's website said.

United Processing LLC, the source of the potentially dangerous beef, is not registered as a supplier for the Russian market, the agency said.

U.S. imports came into question earlier this year, when meat containing the growth hormone ractopamine was banned from the Russian market in February.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
