CHINA BANS IMPORT OF PORK FROM GERMANY
Agri-Pulse reports:

The reaction to Germany's first discovery of a case of African swine fever has been swift. China, which bought $867 million worth of German pork last year, is banning all pork from the country even though the virus has not been detected in the country's commercial pork supply.

German authorities detected the virus in a wild boar near the country's border with Poland.

Any German pork shipped to China before the ban went into place will have to be quarantined for 10 days, according to China's General Administration of Customs. Officials in Berlin with USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service say it's likely the infected boar came from Poland, a country that has suffered numerous outbreak in boars and farmed swine.
