business news in context, analysis with attitude

Mexico’s Agriculture Department announced that it will allow the import of US beef products that include trimmings, livers, tongues, lips, hearts and kidneys, relaxing a ban that has been in place since a single case of mad cow disease was found in the US last December.

The approved cuts will have to come from meat packing plants approved by Mexican authorities and from cows younger than 30 months that have never been exposed to animal-based feed.

Mexico continues to ban imports of US ground beef, mechanically separated beef and other products that could contain bone marrow or spinal material.
