China bans poultry from second U.S. plant over COVID-19, industry group says

CHICAGO, Sept 15 (Reuters) - China has blocked imports from an OK Foods poultry plant in Fort Smith, Arkansas, because of coronavirus cases among workers, the president of the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council said on Tuesday.

The plant is the second U.S. poultry facility to be blocked because of an outbreak, after Beijing suspended imports from a Tyson Foods Inc plant in June.
