This is from R-Calf USA: This petition is important because American produced beef is not differentiated from Brazilian imported beef at supermarkets in the United States. Brazil is under investigation for exporting shipments tainted with bacteria capable of affecting public health. We ask the Administration to ban unsafe imports from Brazil until all beef sold in the United States is labeled with its country of origin. This petition will benefit the largest segment of American agriculture – the U.S. cattle industry, as well as protect American consumers. Read more at www.banbrazilianbeef.com. We are petitioning on behalf of R-CALF USA, a national non-profit trade organization protecting the future of American cattle ranchers.
