Costa Rica will apply rigorous tests to meat from Nicaragua

Costa Rican Sanitation Authorities agreed to apply a strict test to the meat coming from Nicaragua

Monday, October 20, 2008

The tests come as a result of suspicions regarding the presence of the bacteria E. coli in a shipment which arrived in the United States this week.
The Servicio Nacional de Salud Animal (Senasa) [National Animal Health Services] of Costa Rica made the decision after discovering that one of the 15 meat loads from Nicaragua which arrived in the United States was inspected under the suspicion that it may carry the bacteria E. coli, which lodges itself in the intestine and causes digestive disorders.
