Mexico Lifts Beef Age Restriction.

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

(American Meat Institute)

Mexico is making regulatory changes which will allow for the import of U.S. beef and beef products derived from cattle of any age.  The change lifts restrictions on the import of U.S. beef from cattle over 30 months of age and effectively removes the last of Mexico's BSE-related restrictions. This will also allow for termination of the AMS export verification (EV) program for Mexico, in which approximately 170 U.S. establishments are currently enrolled. The new rule will become effective once the USDA export library is updated to reflect it.
