HONG KONG - The Hong Kong Center for Food Safety (CFS) is closely monitoring the situation about the recall of chicken drink products in the United States.

The remarks are reported by official sources in China.

The US authorities are recalling chicken drink products as they do not meet poultry products inspection or poultry exemption requirements in the United States.

The authorities classified this as a Class II recall in which there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product, he said.

"The CFS has contacted the local importer and understands that the products being recalled in the United States carry different batch numbers from the products currently available in Hong Kong.

The Center is closely monitoring the situation and will liaise closely with the US authorities for more information," the spokesman added.
