After the appearance of African swine fever (ASF) in China, the Ministry of Agriculture has urged the feed companies to stop using pig blood in the production of pig feed.

Regarding the products produced and sold before the date of the publication of this announcement by the Ministry, they shall be subject to sampling. In the case of being negative for the ASF virus' nucleic acid, it will be possible to continue commercialising the products. On the other hand, if the test results are positive, the feed production companies will have to take the product off the market safely.

Also, the use of food scraps is also forbidden for feeding the animals housed on the farms located in the provinces affected by the disease and the adjoining ones, and they will only be used after a high heat treatment in the case of the rest of the provinces.
