Poultry products from Lower Saxony, Germany banned
(03-13 18:04)

The Centre for Food Safety said the import of poultry meat and products, including eggs, have been banned from Lower Saxony, Germany, after an outbreak of low-pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in the state.
A CFS spokesman said about 8,000 tonnes of frozen poultry meat were imported into Hong Kong from Germany last year.
An import ban on the same items from two other German states -- Thuringen and Baden-Wurttemberg -- has been in effect since last November and it is still in force, he added.
