AMI Statement on USDA’s Announcement of Rule to Expand Cattle and Beef Trade With Minimal Risk CountriesFriday, September 14, 2007
We are gratified that the team of peer reviewers who analyzed the risk assessment done in connection with this rule found it to be scientifically sound. This should give American consumers great confidence in the integrity of federal oversight of the cattle and beef supply.
The rule’s further restoration of cattle and beef trade with Canada and other minimal risk nations should also prompt all nations that trade in livestock and meat products to take immediate actions to come into compliance with these important global standards.
