China Bans More Dutch Poultry

06 December 2013

CHINA - The Centre for Food Safety has banned poultry product imports from Groningen in the Netherlands due to an avian influenza outbreak.

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) notified the centre of the low-pathogenic H5 avian influenza outbreak today.

About 14,000 tonnes of frozen poultry meat and 13 million poultry eggs were imported to Hong Kong from the Netherlands from January to October.

Import bans on the same items from three other Dutch provinces - Flevoland, Utrecht and Friesland - have been in effect since March.
