A batch of frozen chicken wings exported from Brazil to China tested positive for coronavirus, Chinese officials announced Thursday.
Infected poultry have been detected in Shenzhen City during the periodic inspection of imported meat and seafood since June, city authorities said.
The test was made after an outbreak of coronavirus in Beijing involved a seafood market.
People who may have come into contact with chicken wings, along with food products stored near the batch, were examined by a Shenzhen health authority. All results were back negative.
On Wednesday, China also reported that coronavirus was found on shrimp packages shipped from Ecuador.
COVID-19, which has killed more than 749,000 people worldwide, was first linked to a seafood market in Wuhan city, China.
