RSKHN banned the import 40 tons of pomegranates from Egypt

The Rosselkhoznadzor (RSHN) has banned the importation into the Krasnodar Territory of more than 40 tons of pomegranates from Egypt, the press service of the department reports. In the batch of Egyptian pomegranates that arrived at the port of Novorossiysk, live larvae of the Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata), which is a quarantine object for Russia, were identified.

"According to the current legislation in the field of plant quarantine, contaminated cargo was banned for importation into the territory of the Russian Federation," the report says.

The Mediterranean fruit fly belongs to the group of the most dangerous and harmful species; it damages the fruits of apricot, apple, plum, cherry, tomato, as well as more 200 species of other plants. Damage to the skin of the fly causes mold and rotting fruit.

Earlier, the Rosselkhoznadzor from October 1 lifted a ban on the import of fruits and vegetables from Egypt, except for potatoes. The ban on the import of citrus fruits, tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables from Egypt was introduced on September 22 due to the systematic violation of phytosanitary requirements for the supply of products to Russia. From October 31 to November 3, departmental experts should visit Egypt with an inspection to assess the phytosanitary safety of potatoes.
