"A warning has already been issued against the imports of meat products. But there are still some imports and our federation has asked authorities concerned to take action against this," he added.
The decision to ban importation of meat products without health guarantees came at a time when the country is taking steps to pass a consumer protection law.
At present, Myanmar's meat production sector has met the target of domestic sufficiency and it is even seeking to export surpluses of meat and eggs.
Illegal importation of meat products and eggs can affect the domestic meat production sector. It can also harm the interests of local breeders, producers and those engaging in small poultry farms.
China has also banned imports of poultry and meat products from Myanmar and of those from other countries via Myanmar.
