Beijing removes 13-year-old ban on some US beef products
BEIJING, Sept 22 (AFP): China has removed an almost 13-year-old ban on some US beef products, its quality inspection regulator said Thursday.
A ban on imports of "American bone-in beef and boneless beef for cattle under 30 months" has been lifted immediately, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said, according to a document posted on its official website.
The Asian giant stopped most beef imports from the US over a decade ago after mad cow disease was found in Washington state in December 2003.
