Mexico will resume imports from 20 of the 30 plants it suspended last week, U.S. Department of Agriculture officials told reporters yesterday.

Mexico suspended imports from the 30 plants because each purportedly had two border violations that officials there say are of a technical or sanitary nature

 USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service told reporters that corrective actions had been taken at 20 of the plants and they expect the bans to be removed.  The remaining plants have submitted or will be submitting corrective action plans soon in hopes of resuming exports to Mexico.
