noimageLast month on the 23rd of March 2017, a temporary suspension was placed on the importation of corned beef from Brazil as a result of reports which indicated that several major meat processors had been processing contaminated beef and poultry meat, and that the companies were allegedly making substantial payoffs to officials in order to obtain sanitary licenses.


While an immediate investigation into the matter was launched by the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) and the Ministry of Health, tonight we can tell you that the temporary suspension has been lifted according to a release issued by the Belize Press Office. The release states that samples were gathered from warehouses, retail shops and supermarkets of importers in an effort to verify whether or not the products already present in the country was safe for human consumption.


According to the results of the microbiological testing conducted at BAHA’s Food Safety Laboratory, no pathogens were detected. Prior to this, it was established that none of the corned beef imported into the country originated from any of the Brazilian facilities as stated in the original report. Based on the conclusions, BAHA and the MOH have released all corned beef at the warehouses that had been placed on quarantine and are advising Belizeans that the corn beef product is safe for consumption.

We understand that other countries including China, Hong Kong, Chile, Egypt, Barbados, South Korea and Jamaica have also lifted their bans on all Brazilian meat products.
