Maple Leaf halts exports to China

September 3, 2008

As a result of the Canadian listeriosis outbreak that has linked 11 deaths to deli meat producer Maple Leaf Foods, the company has been forced to stop all exports to China.

All Maple Leaf meat products currently available in China have also been quarantined. China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine plans to watch the situation closely and continue to take timely measures to remove tainted products from the Chinese food supply.
