It was learned that the containers were all misdeclared, allegedly containing tomato paste, according to Agriculture Secretary William Dar.
The shipment is consigned to Jeniti International Trading in Binondo, Manila.
The Bureau of Customs further assesses the value of the shipment, while the Bureau of Animal Industry will also evaluate the products if they are ASF positive.
Pork products from China are banned from entering the country because the country was one of the countries affected by the African Swine Fever. ■
