SOUTH KOREA, Seoul. South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong have limited imports of U.S. poultry after the United States detected its first case this year of avian flu on a commercial chicken farm, South Korea's government and a U.S. trade group said on Monday. This was reported by Reuters.
The limits will reduce the potential for major U.S. chicken companies, such as Tyson Foods Inc (TSN.N) and Pilgrim's Pride (PPC.O), to sell poultry overseas. The Tennessee farm infected with avian flu was contracted to sell birds to Tyson.
