60 countries at risk from tainted Brazilian imports, new data shows

14th Apr 2017 / By Alistair Driver

Sixty countries, including the US, Canada and some EU nations are at risk of importing meat from the companies at the centre of the Brazilian meat scandal, new data shows.

The scandal, coming just a few years after horsemeat scandal, has again highlighted the need for greater transparency in the supply chain, according to an environmental campaign organisation that compiled the data.

This is highlighted by the fact that 12 countries that did not even import meat from the affected companies imposed bans on meat from Brazil.
