Poultry, eggs and other poultry products from the Spanish province of Catalonia have been banned in Hong Kong. The ban was enacted after the World Organization of Animal Health issued a notice about an outbreak of low-pathogenic H7N1 avian influenza on a poultry farm in Catalonia, the Center for Food Safety announced.


About 4,600 metric tons of frozen poultry meat was imported into Hong Kong from Spain in 2012, the center stated.
