S. Korea Agrees to Conditions to Resume Canada Beef Imports

South Korea agreed to conditions for the resumption of beef imports from Canada, paving the way for the lifting of an eight-year-old ban imposed after an outbreak of mad-cow disease.

The government agreed to restrict shipments to beef from animals younger than 30 months, the Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries said in an e-mailed statement today. Imports may resume before the end of the year if procedural steps are completed, it said.
