US-based seafood supplier H&N Group has withdrawn from exhibiting at Seafood Expo North America in Boston next month, citing that the current conditions surrounding the coronavirus outbreak present the company "too much risk."

"The health and safety of our team, partners and colleagues are our top priority," the company said in a letter to customers and suppliers.

Florida-based Sea Delight Group announced on its LinkedIn page on Monday, that it too was foregoing the show. "We simply cannot take any chances with the health of our valued employees, customers and supply partners from around the world," the company posted.
