AGRIBUSINESS: Brazil Beef Safe According to USDA
The USDA proposal to allow frozen and chilled beef from specific Brazilian states extended its comment period for another two months. A large portion of comments were negative, with producers expressing fear that Brazil's foot-and-mouth disease could come overseas and threaten a weakened American herd. USDA performed a risk assessment that says the selected Brazilian states are good to go. Brazil is the biggest exporter of beef in the world.
