Tyson Foods Inc's pork processing plant in Logansport, Indiana, has been suspended from exporting products to China, Reuters reported, citing the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Monday.
The suspension is effective 29 August, the agency said.
Neither USDA nor the company on Monday said why exports to China from the Tyson Fresh Meats plant has been halted.
In a statement to Reuters, Tyson said, "We work closely with the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service to ensure that we produce all of our food in full compliance with government safety requirements. We're confident our products are safe and we're hopeful consultations between the US and Chinese governments will resolve this matter."
