African swine fever virus has been detected in home-made dumplings brought by a Chinese tourist overseas as concerns about the highly contagious animal disease deepen.

The virus was found last month in the luggage belonging to a Chinese traveller at Tokyo Haneda Airport, the world’s fourth largest airport.

The news comes as the deadly viral disease sweeps through the pig population around the world, including East Europe and China.

It also comes as China – the world’s largest pork producer – struggles to control the rapid spread of African swine fever after first reporting an outbreak in August.

A major Chinese animal feed maker yesterday said some of its product could have been contaminated by African swine fever virus, raising further fears of the fatal disease.

Japan’s farm ministry said the African swine fever virus was found in uncooked pork-filled dumplings brought by a traveller from Shanghai on October 14, reported Japanese news site The Mainichi.

This is the second time African swine fever virus has been found in food brought into Japan.
