Wednesday, the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Foodstuffs (SAGARPA) published in Mexico?s Federal Registrar the partial lifting of the restrictions on imports of Canadian beef to Mexico. This restriction was instituted on May 20, 2003, in response to the discovery of BSE in Canada.
Effective Thursday, Oct. 2, 2003, Canada will be allowed to export to Mexico fresh, chilled or frozen beef meat, obtained from animals less than 30 months old.
