China to resume imports of US pork

Chinese officials said Thursday that Beijing will lift a ban on imports of U.S. pork that was imposed last spring due to swine flu fears.
China's agriculture minister and commerce minister, speaking after a day of trade talks with U.S. officials, emphasized that the decision was based on scientific analysis.
The ban has cost the U.S. hog industry millions of dollars every week. They had continued despite insistence by international health officials that pork is safe and the country's hogs are not to blame for the epidemic.
