Russian wheat

"Egypt's state prosecutor ordered the seizure of all Russian wheat for checks over health concerns, Egyptian state media said on Wednesday, in what Russia's grain lobby said was an attempt to influence prices.

The prosecutor made the move after a complaint that a quantity of spoiled wheat unfit for human consumption had entered the Red Sea port of Safaga without proper quality control approvals, state news agency MENA said."
