New U.S.-Taiwan Beef Deal Hits Snag

The new beef deal between the U.S. and Taiwan has hit a snag. After the announcement of the beef agreement, consumer resistance due to food safety concerns began building, putting political pressure on Taiwan’s government. Some confusion also exists regarding which U.S. beef products will be able to be shipped to Taiwan once the new beef import protocol goes into effect.

As a result, the Agriculture Department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service suspended U.S. beef exports from cattle slaughtered after Nov. 2. Industry sources expect a satisfactory resolution to the problem.
