China has stopped shipments of US citrus imports

The move comes after Chinese officials say six shipments bound for China contained a quarantined disease not found in that country. Fruit already on its way will be evaluated to see if it can enter the Chinese market.

The ban comes shortly after the window for exports to China had opened. It's unclear how long the ban will be in place.
