China's State Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (SAQSIQ) and the Ministry of Agriculture jointly issued the circular Thursday.

All pigs, wild boars and their produce that have been transported to China from Korea will be returned or destroyed, the SAQSIQ source said.

The circular also forbade pigs, wild boars and their produce from the ROK to be sent by post or carried by passengers.

These produce from Korea will be sealed up if they are found on international ships, airplanes and trains going through China, the SAQSIQ said.
