China has suspended poultry meat imports from food processor BRF SA's Lucas do Rio Verde plant in central Brazil, according to the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC).

BRF confirmed the suspension but said it has not been officially notified, having only learned about it on the GACC website.

The company said it will take the appropriate measures with Chinese and Brazilian authorities to reverse the situation, reported Reuters.

"The volumes from this unit will be directed to other markets, in line with BRF's integrated plan. The company also emphasizes that its seven certified units continue to normally export chicken to China," it said.
