Concerning the Information on Detection of Russian Wheat Containing High Ochratoxin Levels in Lebanon
Due to news reports on detection of high ochratoxin
level-containing wheat imported from Russia by the Lebanese Ministry of Health
we deem it appropriate to inform that no notifications from the Lebanese side
were received by the Rosselkhoznadzor. In order to get more details about this
issue the Rosselkhoznadzor sent a request to the Russian Embassy in Lebanon.
The Rosselkhoznadzor also gave instructions to its Territorial Administrations
to enhance control of Russian grain export consignments.
