China bans three US pork plants

China has banned imports of meat from three US pork plants and two poultry plants, but no reason was given, according to a US Agriculture Department document.

As of Aug. 3, China is not accepting meat from the Smithfield Foods pork plant at Tar Heel, North Carolina; the John Morrell & Co pork plant at Sioux City, Iowa; the Seaboard Food pork plant at Guymon, Oklahoma; the Equity Group-KY Division poultry plant at Albany, Kentucky; and the Mountaire Farms poultry plant at Selbyville, Delaware.

John Morrell & Co is a unit of Smithfield Foods.
