CHINA SUSPENDS POULTRY IMPORTS FROM SECOND U.S PLANT

According to the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council, China has suspended imports from an OK Foods poultry plant in Arkansas because of coronavirus cases among workers.

It’s the second US poultry factory to be blocked because of an outbreak among employees.

“We don’t think that either one of these two is justified, especially considering the fact that the virus cannot be transmitted in poultry meat,” Jim Sumner, president of the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council said.

Chinese customs authority GACC suspended imports from the OK Foods facility, he said.

The Arkansas plant became ineligible to ship products to China on September 13, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
