China resumes inspection of Brazilian meat imports


The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), China’s product quality watchdog, has resumed inspection of meat products imported from Brazil. According to an AQSIQ internal instruction dated March 25 and obtained by Asian Agribiz, Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture has confirmed with Chinese authorities that all meats exported to China were not involved in the recent scandal.

But imports from a Brazilian plant coded SIF 530 will still be suspended, and any shipments on the way or have recently arrived should be rejected, as the plant is recalling its exports. SIF 530 marks the products from Seara, a unit of Brazil’s JBS.
