It has clearly stated that: The clean washed feather and down are not restricted by the factor of epidemic area of avian influenza. Therefore, the export of washed feather and down from the USA to China will not be prohibited at present. Also, the washed feather and down do not belong to the current list of restrictive poultry products from the USA.
Hereby, we ask the United States Department of Agriculture to permit the export of washed feather and down to China.
