China bans poultry imports from France due to bird flu

 
 

China's General Administration of Customs said the country has suspended poultry imports from France after multiple highly pathogenic H5N8 bird flu cases were detected there, Reuters reported.

 

The General Administration of Customs said the ban was imposed to protect China's animal husbandry industry.

 

In December last year, China banned poultry imports from Ireland due to bird flu.
