China has imposed tougher restrictions for imports of live pigs from the U.S. amid concerns about a fatal swine virus, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and livestock-industry officials.

China, the world's largest consumer of pork, has asked the USDA to conduct testing and provide certification that live hogs come from herds that are free of porcine epidemic diarrhea, or PED, virus.

Live hogs represent a relatively small portion of pork-related U.S. exports to China. The Asian nation last year bought 14,000 hogs, valued at $20 million, according to the USDA. In contrast, exporters shipped $703.5 million worth of fresh pork to the country, according to the U.S. Meat Export Federation, a trade group.
