Members of the Provincial African Swine Fever Task Force in Negros Occidental have intercepted 20 kilograms of pork products shipped from Cebu during a cargo inspection at the Bacolod-Silay Airport in Silay City Thursday night.

Dr. Ryan Janoya, head of Animal Health and Meat Inspection Services Division of the Provincial Veterinary Office, said yesterday the frozen pork meat products that were shipped for a restaurant in Bacolod City have no necessary documents.

Janoya said the owner allowed the task force to confiscate the pork products. He added that the task force burned the items yesterday morning.
