Japan ends ban on Wisconsin poultry products
MADISON, Wis. — Japan has lifted a ban on Wisconsin poultry products that was instituted after birds in Jefferson County showed signs of exposure to avian flu.
A routine inspection done four months ago found some birds had antibodies to low-pathogen avian influenza, indicating they could have been exposed to the disease.
But Wisconsin State Veterinarian Dr. Paul McGraw says follow-up tests showed no signs of the virus and there was never a threat to public health.
The Wisconsin Department of Trade, Agriculture and Consumer Protection says Japan ended its ban Wednesday and will accept poultry products from birds killed or eggs laid after that.
Bans instituted by China and Russia remain in effect.
