Two farms in China with a total of 450 pigs have been hit with outbreaks of foot and mouth disease.

Officials have slaughtered both herds.

The outbreak infected 327 of the 450 hogs found on those two farms in Zhongshan city, Guangdong, China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said in a statement on its website.

China’s hog industry is struggling to contain outbreaks of African Swine Fever. In a recent development, a Chinese airline has said it will stop serving pork meals.
