MIDA detects pork meat from the Dominican Republic in Bocas del Toro

The MIDA decreed on July 29 an animal health alert before the detection of African Swine Fever in the Dominican Republic.
Inspectors of the Executive Directorate of Agricultural Quarantine of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA) located in a port in Bocas del Toro refrigerators with 80 pounds of pork inside a boat from the Dominican Republic, a country where an alert is currently maintained for the presence of African Swine Fever.

MIDA reported that the detected pork came from San Pedro de Macorís in the Dominican Republic.

The vessel was approached by inspectors of the entity specifically in the port of Chiriquí Grande in Bocas del Toro, where it will be for three days without its crew being able to open their kitchen refrigerators since they are kept closed under a seal and custody until leaving port facilities.

The ship plans to load raw sugar to the United States.
