business news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today this morning reports that the Mexican government has “voluntarily suspended shipments of meat and processed poultry to the United States after U.S. officials raised concerns about the quality of Mexican food processing and inspections.”

According to the story, there are “systemic problems with sanitation controls and recordkeeping,” which led to the request by the US Food Safety and Inspection Service. An audit currently is being conducted, and it is unknown how long the suspension will last.
