China has banned the import of British beef again, after a case of mad cow disease was discovered in the United Kingdom last month.

The ban was for cows less than 30 months old. The decision was deemed effective as of September 29, according to a statement from the General Administration of Customs of China.

And last month, the Animal and Plant Health Agency in the United Kingdom revealed a confirmed case of mad cow disease on a farm in Somerset, southwest England.

Barely three years after China resumed imports of British beef after previous restrictions that remained in place until 2018, Beijing reimposed a new ban.
