Statement of the American Meat Institute on South Korea's Third Rejection of a U.S. Beef Shipment

Wednesday, December 6, 2006

We agree with the Secretary of Agriculture’s comments that the government of South Korea will look for any reason to reject all U.S. beef products. The standards being applied by South Korea are commercially unachievable and are inconsistent with international animal health standards.

South Korea appears to want to talk free trade, but does not want to allow free trade.
