virusscan a RPM file?

Hi all!

At work we've developed a package that we ship as an RPM. We also have
a requirement to virusscan everything we ship.

The company uses AVG antivirus on Windows. It can find and scan all
the files in a zip file, but it scans only the RPM itself, not its
contents.

Anybody out thre know if RH (or Centos) has any tools for scanning
contentss of files such as RPM that have other things embedded inside
them?

Thanks in advance!

EPEL has clamav. Red Hat maintains that anti-virus is unnecessary, so does not ship a solution.
