March 29 (Bloomberg) -- Japan is allowing imports of North Carolina poultry slaughtered before Feb. 9, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Poultry processed on or after that date is not eligible for export to the Asian nation, the service said today in a report on its website. The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service last week said that Japan halted imports of poultry from the state.
