Brazilian Beef Banned by Several Countries After Reports of Rotten Meat Imports

He also warned consumers not to purchase corned beef or other canned meats manufactured in Brazil until the investigation was completed, the report said.

Maggi fears for the continued livelihood of Brazil's meat industry; the country is now the world's most prolific exporter of beef and poultry.

China, which accounted for almost one-third of the Brazilian meatpacking industry's €12.8bn in exports previous year, suspended imports of all meat products from Brazil as a precautionary measure. In response, Montana Senator John Tester is also introducing a bill to temporarily ban Brazilian beef imports to the United States.

The import bans came as a result of recent findings that meat producers in Brazil allegedly bribed inspectors to certify meat that was either rotten or tainted with salmonella.

Japan, Brazil's third-biggest market for chicken with $720 million in sales, imposed a similar limited ban, while Mexico has stopped imports of chicken produced by the 21 companies under scrutiny.

In a release, Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat said they had advised the Chemistry, Food and Drugs Division of the Ministry of Health to embark upon an immediate recall from supermarkets and retail outlets of these products from Brazil. While it reportedly appears that the federation did receive two shipments of products, that was early in 2016; exactly what those food items were is still being determined.

Exports of beef, pork and poultry make up 15 percent of Brazil's total exports, and a collapse in the sector would have serious implications for Brazil's economy, which is already in deep recession.

Brazilian beef accounts for less than 10 per cent of Sun Art's beef supply, she said.

Numerous world's major economies have taken action after plants belonging to meat companies BRF, JBS and Grupo Peccin were targeted by police.

Ibrahim said supermarket owners and operators of the larger chain stores are "ready and committed to removing product immediately in the best interest of citizens and the country".
