In a note, the commission informed the local office in charge of disease control and prevention today, after analyzing the packaging. The three samples of beef entered the country through Qingdao Customs, in northeastern China.
The city “quickly adopted emergency measures”, the same note says, including the storage of cargo and the testing and isolation of personnel who had contact with the packaging.
The samples were part of a total of 27 tons of meat imported from Brazil. The meat left the port of Santos and arrived in Wuhan on August 17, but had not yet been marketed.
“All the frozen products involved were sealed and the environment was completely sterilized,” said the local Health Commission.
The agency urged citizens not to buy frozen food imported outside of retail chains and to actively check the product’s test report before consumption.
It is not the first time that China says it has detected traces of the new coronavirus in frozen food packaging from Brazil.
In November, officials said they detected the new coronavirus on the packaging of a batch of frozen pork in Yantai city, Shandong province.
On August 13, traces of the new coronavirus were also found on the surface of packages containing frozen chicken wings from the South American country, in the city of Shenzhen, next to Hong Kong.
China accounted for 40% of Brazilian agricultural exports in the first half of this year, a record amount of US $ 20.5 billion (17.3 billion euros), according to data from the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture.
