China Bans Imports of All U.S. Poultry and Eggs

Taylor Hillman General

China has banned imports of U.S. poultry and eggs after a strain of H5N8 influenza was found in Oregon and another strain was detected in California and Washington.

American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman says this national ban is a clear violation of international trade rules and one that will be costly to American poultry and egg farmers. AFBF will support the U.S. Trade Representative and USDA’s actions to correct this situation as quickly as possible.
