China announced Wednesday that it will impose new tariffs on U.S. chicken of 3.8% to as much as 31.4% of the import price, according to Business Week.

This action comes on top of tariffs of up to 105.4% placed on U.S. chicken after imposing anti-dumping duties in February. The Commerce Ministry of China said that U.S. producers received improper support that hurt Chinese competitors due to government subsidies that lowered the price of feed.


The tariffs, which vary by producer, reportedly apply to chicken parts and whole birds but not to live chickens or cooked products such as chicken sausage.
