Russian agriculture watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has banned seafood imports from companies in Denmark, Canada and New Zealand.

In Denmark the ban concerns Akamalik (Royal Greenland A/S). Lab tests on prawns from this company revealed repeated cases of E.coli.

Prawns from Canada's Clearwater Ocean Prawns Venture were also banned due to E.coli.

Restrictions were also imposed on products from New Zealand's PH1 (Talley's Group Limited). E.coli was found in mussels from this company.
