The United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) added China to the list of regions we consider to be affected with African Swine Fever (ASF.) We took this action on August 6, 2018 when the disease was confirmed and are now publishing notice in the regulations. Most swine products, including meat, were already restricted before the ASF finding due to other swine disease concerns. USDA is now restricting the importation of Chinese-origin casings in order to prevent this disease from entering the country.

ASF is a devastating, deadly disease of pigs that is not currently found in the United States. USDA's actions will help protect our producers and the swine industry.
