BRUSSELS - The European Commission is concerned about a ban imposed on European soft cheese imports in China but has failed so far to receive a response from the authorities to letters complaining about the action, Commission sources said on Monday.

Shanghai, one of the main entry ports for most products, has halted the import of cheeses such as Roquefort, Brie and Camembert in a move set to damage European exporters, diplomatic and industry sources said on Friday.

It is not clear why Shanghai’s inspection and quarantine bureau had done so, though a European diplomat who confirmed the decision said such cheeses were made with cultures not authorized in China.
