Japan Recommends Easing Foreign Beef Restrictions

ヨ!私はここにあなたの肉を得た。(Yo! I got your meat right here.)

A couple of days ago, a Japanese government food safety advisory panel approved recommendations on easing restrictions on imports of U.S. beef.

Okay... so the easing of restrictions has a few strings attached, as it's not a done deal yet.

This is a recommendation from a panel....

These recommendations are now open to a 30-day public comment period, with the results then passed on to Japan's Health Ministry.

The panel recommendations are:
  1. that even if Japan raises the age of culled cattle from 20 months to 30 months, there is no danger to human health;
  2. And... just because the article was US-centric when I found it, the panel has also noted that the age of cattle can be raised for beef from: Canada, Netherlands and France... who also had cattle age restrictions they had to adhere to. 
 Japan - It's A Wonderful Rife only presents this story because he thinks cows are cool and tasty.
