Japan resumes imports of N.C. poultry

Poultry slaughtered before Feb. 9 eligible for export

Japan is allowing imports of North Carolina poultry slaughtered before Feb. 9, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

This restriction comes after both Japan and Russia halted all imports from the state due to avian influenza concerns. Any poultry processed on or after Feb. 9 remains ineligible for export to Japan, according to the FSIS report.
