NCBA to APHIS- Withdraw the Rule on Brazilian Beef and Redo Risk and Economic Assessments

NCBA to APHIS- Withdraw the Rule on Brazilian Beef and Redo Risk and Economic Assessments


The National Cattlemen's Beef Association has filed comments with the US Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service- APHIS- in opposition to a proposed federal rule that would allow fresh and frozen beef imports from Brazil. Earlier this year, the United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) issued a proposed federal rule that would allow Brazil to export to the United States fresh and frozen beef from specific regions in Brazil. As recently as 2010, Brazil has reported an outbreak of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD). The United States has not had a case of FMD since the 1920s.


The head of the Washington office of the NCBA, Colin Woodall, says that NCBA has asked APHIS to reopen and extend the comment period for another 120 days, as several documents that were requested by the organization have yet to be made public by APHIS and the Food Safety Inspection Service of the USDA. NCBA has also asked APHIS to withdraw the rule and do a more in depth risk assessment and economic assessment of the proposal.


Woodwall explains the NCBA case against the rule that would end up allowing Brazilian beef- fresh and frozen- to enter the United States on today's Beef Buzz.


The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
