Pork Products in Yunlin Test Positive for African Swine Fever 雲林月餅檢出非洲豬瘟陽性 全台已12件

As the Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching, investigators in Yunlin found a mooncake product imported from Vietnam to be contaminated with African swine fever. This is the 12th positive case found in the ongoing crackdown. 


After getting a tip, Yunlin health officials visited this grocery store in Mailiao and seized pork mooncakes for testing. Tests for African swine fever came back positive on Aug. 29.

Grocery Store Staff:” (Do you have any more mooncakes?) No. (No more?) No. They took them all away that day. (Do you know what the problem was with the mooncakes? Do you know?) None of us know.” 

The public health bureau says it received a tip on Aug. 17 about a grocery store that was selling Vietnamese mooncakes. Of the six mooncakes seized, one tested positive for ASF.

Lin Hsiao-ling, Section Chief, Public Health Bureau, Yunlin County:” One of the six samples we tested came back positive for African swine fever. We are trying to trace it upstream and also see if the same product was sold downstream to other retailers.” 

African swine fever was also detected in a packet of chicken strips seized from a migrant worker in Kaohsiung on Aug. 29. The same chicken product was also found at the grocery store in Yunlin and all stock has been seized.

 

 

雲林衛生局接獲通報,來到雲林麥寮這間雜貨店,查到來源不明含肉月餅送驗,29號確認這批含肉月餅,被檢出非洲豬瘟病毒核酸陽性。

雜貨店店員:「(現在還有沒有月餅)沒有了,(都沒有月餅了)。沒有,那天都帶走了。(知不知道說月餅怎麼會有問題?)我們都不知道。」

雲林縣衛生局表示,8月17號接到通報指出,縣內轄區有雜貨店賣越南月餅,馬上與保七大隊會和聯合稽查並將月餅帶回送驗,當日共抽檢6件月餅,其中一件被驗出非洲豬瘟病毒。

雲林縣衛生局科長 林小玲:「當天抽了六件,結果是有一件檢出非洲豬瘟病毒陽性。目前還在追查它的來源,跟下游業者,是不是有其他業者還有購買到,有的話就要注意一下。」

雲林縣衛生局表示,29號非洲豬瘟中央災害應變中心公布檢驗報告中,還有一件位在高雄商行的雞肉絲,也被驗出非洲豬瘟陽性,而雲縣內轄內這家商行也有同樣包裝雞肉絲,目前也都收回這款雞肉絲送驗中。
