China stops imports of AR poultry products

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Arkansas poultry products are no longer being exported to China... at least, for right now.

The Department of Agriculture released a statement stating that exports to China were stopped effective July 22.

The move follows positive bird flu tests in June on a Scott County farm. You can see on this map, Scott County is near the Oklahoma-Arkansas state line. Arkansas is the nation's second-largest poultry producer.
