A flock of frozen chicken wings exported from Brazil to China tested positive for coronavirus, Chinese officials announced on Thursday.
Infected birds were detected in Shenzhen City during routine displays of imported meat and seafood carried out since June, the city government said in a statement.
The submissions were implemented after a coronavirus outbreak in Beijing was linked to a seafood market.
People who may have come in contact with chicken wings, along with food stored near the group, were tested by Shenzhen health authorities. All these results came back negatively.
On Wednesday, China also reported that the coronavirus was found in packages of shrimp shipped from Ecuador.
COVID-19, which has killed over 749,000 people worldwide, was first connected to a seafood market in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
