US and China discuss meat-trade barriers
US and Chinese agricultural officials are discussing
Beijing's ban on the leanness-enhancing feed additive ractopamine, causing China
to ban pork plants.
China recently banned meat from eight US pigmeat facilities after detecting
traces of ractopamine in their shipments, bound for the Chinese capital.
Washington wants the Chinese to drop the ban, as the trade barrier
is considered to be unjustified.
USDA press secretary Keith Williams
said more technical talks are scheduled for mid-September.
