Hong Kong maintains China poultry import ban

Import of live, chilled, frozen poultry banned for 21 days beginning January 1

Hong Kong is maintaining its ban on poultry imports from southern China after a man from the area died due to the H5N1 strain of avian influenza.

The import of live, chilled and frozen poultry and eggs from within a 13-kilometer (8-mile) radius of the man’s home in Shenzhen has been suspended for 21 days starting January 1, according to a Centre for Food Safety statement. "We will continue to closely monitor the latest situation about the avian flu case and take appropriate follow-up action," said a spokesman for the CFS.
