Conaway on U.S. Halt of Brazilian Beef: Appropriate and Necessary

06/22/2017 | 09:09pm EDT
Washington, D.C. - Following U.S. Sec. of Agriculture Sonny Perdue's announcement that the U.S. is indefinitely suspending all imports of fresh beef from Brazil, House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) made the below remarks:

'U.S. consumers enjoy the safest food supply in the world and, like Sec. Perdue, I am committed to keeping it that way. Halting imports of fresh beef from Brazil is an appropriate and necessary measure as Brazilian officials work to assess and correct the situation, and gives U.S. officials time to develop a better understanding of the magnitude of the problem and acceptable solutions. I am thankful for the secretary's swift response and for the continued work of the folks at USDA's Food Safety Inspection Service to protect the food we eat.'
