The ban was announced in December 2014 when two farms in British Columbia, Canada suffered outbreaks of H5 subtype avian influenza.

At that time, the US also reported the AI virus and its poultry products were banned by China from January 2015.

The ban on US poultry has been affecting domestic production as China relied on the imports of GP broiler stock, particularly from the US and France.
