Bird Flu :: Japan bans South Korean poultry imports

Japan has suspended poultry imports from South Korea from Thursday after a suspected case of bird flu was found at a poultry farm in the southwest of the country, a Japanese Agriculture Ministry official said on Friday.

Japan as a rule halts poultry imports from countries where there has been an actual or reported outbreak of bird flu.

On Thursday, South Korea’s farm ministry said it had discovered a suspected case of bird flu at the poultry farm, which could be the country’s first outbreak in about three years.
