U.S. Ag Secretary Calls Import Standards Which Cut Off Kansas Meatpacker “Invented”
The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture is criticizing South Korea for stopping beef shipments from a Kansas meatpacker.
Ag Secretary Mike Johanns says Korean officials, in his words, “invented” a standard for imports.
South Korea suspended imports from Creekstone Farms Premium Beef
because authorities said they found a bone fragment in boneless beef.
Creekstone raises Black Angus cattle in Kentucky and slaughters them in Arkansas City, Kansas. Johanns says the shipment was seven tons of beef.
