China Includes Sweden in Poultry Import Ban

Dead duck in Eskilstuna

Swedish agricultural experts are puzzled by China’s decision to ban imports of poultry from this country, along with 13 other nations, in an effort to stop the spread of avian influenza.

It’s believed the inclusion of Sweden was motivated by media reports of infected ducks found two weeks ago near Eskilstuna, west of Stockholm.

Apparently the Chinese authorities missed the follow-up report from the Swedish Board of Agriculture that the birds involved were suffering from a harmless and common form of bird flu and not the deadly H5N1 strain.
