10 - 08/97 - Contamination of Rubber Bales ex Liberia

We understand from an owner loading cargoes of rubber bales out of Liberia that they are presently finding many bales contaminated with insect larvae. Reportedly these are being found in between the individual sheets. Whilst not causing claims upon the cargo they have left several ships with serious infestation problems.
