Chicken Wings Imported to China From Brazil Test Positive For COVID


Frozen chicken wings and shrimp imported to China were reportedly tested and found to be positive for COVID-19.

According to Reuters, the “contaminated” wings were imported from Brazil to Shenzen in Southern China, while “traces of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 were found on the packaging of frozen shrimp from Ecuador in a city in eastern Anhui province.”

Workers at the Shenzen facility reportedly tested negative for the virus, Reuters notes.

Despite comments from a Chinese representative working for the Brazilian meatpacker claiming, “It is hard to say at which stage the frozen chicken got infected,” Shenzen health authorities are urging the public to be weary of imported meat and seafood.
