MOSCOW. March 19 (Interfax) - Russia's Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) has enhanced laboratory control over the supply of products from Brazil's Uniao Casings, a global leader in producing natural casings, Rosselkhoznadzor's press service told Interfax.
