FDA includes Ma Ling in List of Banned Pork Meat Products
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) includes Ma Ling in the list of processed pork meat products under a temporary ban due to African swine fever virus.
On Tuesday (May 28, 2019), FDA announced the temporary ban on the distributions, importation, and sale of processed pork meat products from countries allegedly affected by the African swine fever.
Canned goods from Vietnam, Zambia, South Africa, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Mongolia, Moldova, and Belgium are covered by the ban.
FDA officer-in-charge Eric Domingo said that the ban aims to prevent the virus from affecting the livestock in the country.
Domingo also confirmed that popular processed pork meat products including Ma Ling were also covered by the ban.
“Yes [Ma Ling is covered by the ban]. The FDA regulatory board will go around and inspect. We also ask the public to report any sightings [of these banned products] to the FDA,” Domingo said.
