Brazilian Spoiled beef scandal

AllisWD45's Avatar Mar 26, 2017 | 11:04 1 Been reading about spoiled beef being shipped out of Brazil world wide. Apparently China has banned imports for now and buyers around the world are scrambling for supplies.
Australia has no extra big supplies as they are in rebuilding mode. USA still not banning but Canada is.
I wonder how closely our 2 Brazilian owned plants are being monitered
Any thoughts about this out there? Reply With Quote
Mar 26, 2017 | 17:09 2 Another meat industry scandal - seems to be par for the course in this sector for some reason. From what I understand a chicken processing company is the one causing most concern in Brazil rather than beef. On the beef side they got caught out for sure - but the damage is done, things will be put right and longterm it won't have a big impact. Scottish fat cattle have had a little price bump as a result, likely replacing some Brazilian imports in the EU.
I would assume CFIA don't take bribes and are monitoring things to a higher standard at Brooks particularly given the history of that plant during the Nilsson era!


Speaking of Nilssons I see them advertising wanting bison "for Lacombe" - do they have an involvement with the Canadian Premium plant in Lacombe now? Last I heard it was One Earth running that with Cantriex/Saretsky involvement. Reply With Quote
