China bird flu has not spread, no impact on poultry market - govt

BEIJING, Dec 30 (Reuters) - China’s Ministry of Agriculture said on Friday the recent outbreaks of bird flu have been handled in a “timely and effective” manner without spreading and have not affected chicken products or prices.

In an emailed statement to Reuters, the government department said the situation in the world’s second-largest poultry consumer was “stable”.

The comments come as South Korea and neighbouring countries battle outbreaks of various strains of the highly virulent flu.
