Brazil Lifts Ban On Beef Exports To China

China has lifted its temporary ban on Brazilian beef imports after a 10-day suspension in trade due to the discovery of an atypical case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE).

Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply announced the BSE-infected cow had been discovered on May 31, and the ban on exports to China was put in place on June 3, 2019. Brazilian officials said the 17-year-old cow was detected in Mato Grosso state, and that all the necessary material for tests was collected and the remainder of the cow was incinerated.

“No part of the animal entered the food chain, there are no risks for the population,” Brazilian officials said.
