Russia halts shipments from Nebraska pork plant

Russia placed a Crete, Neb. pork plant on its list of banned meatpackers Dec. 27 after the United State's Food Safety Inspection Service said salmonella was found in meat exported to the country. The Farmland plant, a division of the world's largest pork producer, Smithfiled Foods, will be prohibited from shipping meat to Russia starting Jan. 5. John Harrington, a livestock consultant, told the Lincoln Journal-Star that the ban could be as much a political move as a quality concern as Russia looks to become self-sustaining in meat production.
