OTTAWA, June 25 (Reuters) - China will turn away any "meat products" shipped from Canada starting on Wednesday, according to a report in Le Journal de Montreal, citing an official in the office of the Chinese consul general in Montreal.

The justification for the total block is that China said it found a number of fake veterinary health certificates for meat products imported from Canada because of poor supervision, the newspaper said.

The Chinese consul's office in Montreal could not be immediately reached for comment.

China's slowdown deepens in August; industrial output growth falls to 17-1/2 year low

Retail sales and investment gauges also worsened, data on Monday showed, reinforcing views that China is likely to cut some of its key interest rates this week for the first time in over three years to prevent a sharper slump in activity. Industrial output growth unexpectedly weakened to 4.4% in August from the same period a year earlier, the slowest pace since February 2002 and receding from 4.8% in July. In particular, the value of delivered industrial exports fell 4.3% on-year, the first monthly decline since at least two years, Reuters records showed, highlighting the growing toll on Chinese manufacturers from the escalating Sino-U.S. trade war.
