A batch of frozen chicken wings exported from Brazil to China turned out to be positive for coronavirus, Chinese officials said on Thursday.
The infected poultry were found in the city of Shenzhen during routine inspections of imported meat and seafood, carried out since June, the city government said in a statement.
The screenings came after the Beijing coronavirus outbreak was linked to the seafood market.
People who may have come in contact with the chicken wings, along with food stored near the batch, have been tested by Shenzhen health authorities. All these results came back negative.
On Wednesday, China also announced that the coronavirus had been found on packages of shrimp shipped from Ecuador.
