China blocks beef from US plant over detection of ractopamine

China has blocked beef imports from the JBS Greeley, Colorado plant, according to a notice on the USDA’s Food Safety Inspection website.

FSIS says China has a zero-tolerance policy for ractopamine in beef products.  Under current rules, facilities may be suspended for initial ractopamine findings during testing upon arrival. A spokesperson from FSIS says ractopamine was detected by customs in China in a batch of frozen beef omasum products that were exported. The products were destroyed in accordance with the country’s regulations.
