Bird nests may become just nests for birds

THE Malaysian bird's nest industry is facing another hurdle as China has banned its citizens from bringing the item back after visiting Malaysia, China Press reported.

Federation of Malaysia Bird's Nest Merchants Association deputy president Datuk Tok Teng Sai said this posed a great challenge to the bird's nest industry as China had already stopped its import from Malaysia due to high levels of nitrate found in them.
