China’s General Administration of Customs said the decision was made after 500 employees of the plant in Arkansas tested positive for Covid-19. Shipments from the plant are temporarily suspended, and products that have already arrived in China will be impounded.

US food and drinks giant PepsiCo was ordered to shut down one of its snack-making plants in Beijing after 8 employees of the plant tested positive for Covid-19.
