    MEXICO CITY: Mexican customs officials have quarantined 3,000 tonnes of rice from Pakistan after they discovered that the shipment was contaminated by a tiny beetle that destroys grain products, officials said Tuesday.:taunt::taunt::taunt:



    A customs official in the Gulf of Mexico port city of Veracruz said the Khapra beetle, or Trogoderma granarium, was found during the inspection of 120 containers from the South Asian nation.

    The shipment is in quarantine while authorities decide whether to destroy the rice or return it to Pakistan, the president of the Veracruz customs agent union, Anibal Arturo Rosas Reyes, told AFP.

    Officials have been instructed to ensure that "every rice container from this origin (Pakistan) be inspected" to protect Mexican crops from the risk of contamination, he added.

    The brown beetle, which is between two and three millimeters long, is a destructive pest that feeds on grains and cereal products. (AFP)

    Last week met an Iranian in Delhi who is involved in imports of Basmati Rice from India. As per him Iran has almost stopped imports of rice from Pakistan due to 4 reasons

    1. It is not real basmati.
    2. Quality problems
    3. Delivery commitments are very poor, and
    4. There is no mechanism to pay for the imports unlike India where UCO bank is the routing bank for the money.

    A tiny beetle should not have caused a consternation.

    What did they expect from Pakistan?

    Super duper huge dangerous stuff?

    Are they not aware that Pakistan has no electricity and cannot check or see what is being exported?

    Thank heavens, it was only a beetle and not a consignment of anthrax!

    Indian basmati quality is indeed superior to the Pakistani

    When Pakis can live in the West posing as Indians then this is nothing.

    In shipments to Afghanistan, the ISI smuggle quantities of ammonium nitrate within the rice.
