Happened recently in some regions of China pathogenic bird flu, due to shortage of raw materials down raw material prices to soar, there will be down products may adversely affect exports.
According to China Textile News reported February 16, has recently occurred in some regions of China pathogenic bird flu has led to a consumer of poultry feather products, health and safety issues. To this end, Wujiang, Jiangsu inspection and quarantine departments in accordance with the characteristics of avian influenza virus and down products processing process analysis pointed out that bird flu will not be passed down products directly transmitted to humans. However, shortage of raw materials down raw material prices rise, there will be down products may adversely affect exports.
It is understood that in the production process down products, down, after first washing, then again after 30 minutes of 120 ℃ -130 ℃ steam disinfection. Avian influenza virus to high temperature, dry and more sensitive to chemical disinfectants, under the conditions of 56 ℃ in 30 minutes can be inactivated at 70 ℃ for two minutes under the conditions of use can be inactivated. Therefore, even in the presence of avian influenza virus in the feather down raw materials in, after washing, drying and disinfection process can also be effective in eradication. Therefore produced by the normal process of passing down products will not be carrying avian influenza virus.
However, the volatility of bird flu to down products export enterprises caused some negative effects. Some consumers, especially consumers in Europe and America on the use of poultry feather products with fear, causing the market down products unsalable. On the one hand, consumers panic exacerbated the down market of the Depression, so that some foreign importers wait a little macro news; On the other hand, in order to prevent the spread of the avian flu epidemic, killing many Chinese provinces and cities to prevent the epidemic from imported poultry, the poultry category and its products logistics has taken strict measures, resulting in business-to-down inter-provincial transportation of raw materials difficulties due to shortage of raw materials down raw material prices to soar. If the export enterprises with foreign investors years ago signed a supply contract, price and quantity have long established that raw material shortages and rising prices led to a contract may not be able to fulfill, bird flu is expected to bring down products in 2009 exports of certain negative impact.
