Please take our Tainted Meat: US Asks Russia to Lift Meat Ban…

US Asks Russia to Lift Meat Ban: Please take our Tainted Meat, because no one else will…

WASHINGTON, on February 11th 2013 has whined “What did we do!”: The US government on Monday called on Russia to lift a ban on US beef and pork imports containing the livestock feed additive ractopamine, which went into effect earlier in the day…

I have read that the US wants to talk about it, but the US was given a chance and ignored that chance…

Russia says, “We do not want the crap in our meat!” Russia says ractopamine is unsafe and dangerous, that it is imposing the ban on US meat imports containing the food additive, because the US Food Safety and Inspection Service failed to guarantee that beef and pork shipments would be free of ractopamine. Russia has waited for a response and one never came from America, where as Canada and several other countries complied and made concessions…

Once again it is an America that does no wrong and everyone is mean to her as she is so perfect and is the queen of perfection. Just listen to the stupid statement that comes out of several “foot in mouth” diseased individuals: “The United States is very disappointed that Russia has taken action to suspend all imports of US meat, which is produced to the highest safety standards in the world,” said US Trade Representative Ron Kirk and US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in a joint statement.”

Seriously? The highest safety standards in the world! Seriously? Then they do not get out much do they?

Now if you knew what I know and what many people know who refuse to eat food produced by American big bussiness. Then you would roll your eyes at such a flagrantly pathetic attempt at trying to convince themselves that America has safe food standards…

Russia has responded to the whining with more banning of tainted food: Russia Bans Turkey Over Ractopamine Residues…

This is interesting: The food safety standards set by the United Nations, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, allows a measurable amount of ractopamine at 10 parts per billion! Now we find out that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows the usage of a standard of 50 parts per billion… (10 parts compared to 50 parts)

That seems to be a whole bunch higher…

Ractopamine, which is used to stimulate livestock growth and make meat leaner, is prohibited in around 160 countries world wide. The drug is just not a good thing to use and most of the world agrees…

In an attempt to politicize this issue, a leading association of US pork producers said the ban is less about food safety concerns and more about reducing competition for the Russian meat industry. “This is not about food safety issues, this is about protecting the domestic product,” said National Pork Producers Council spokesman Dave Warner as he also said, “Pork is a pretty important industry for Russia, so this is about reducing the competition for their domestic pork industry,” Warner said.

The US is worried that a lucrative market is about to be shut forever and last year the US exported just over 80,000 metric tons (88,183 tons) of beef to Russia at a value of $307 million, and more than 99,000 metric tons (109,126 tons) of pork at a value of $282 million…

A country that is as far in debt as America is cannot afford to lose any trade at all…

Please Russia, keep the tainted meat out of our stores in Russia! We have plenty of good meat to eat…
