Hong Kong has resumed imports of poultry products, including poultry eggs and frozen poultry, from northeastern Liaoning province in China after a 21-day suspension in wake of a confirmed H5N1 outbreak, according to the Center for Food Safety of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China.
No notifications of further poultry or human cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza in that area have been received since April 26. Appropriate monitoring and control measures were taken by mainland authorities, said a spokesperson for the Center for Food Safety, and the center will continue to monitor the situation and take any necessary measures to safeguard public health.
