Temporary Ban on Corned Beef Products from Brazil Lifted
With immediate effect, the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is advising the public that the recent food alert issued concerning the recall of corned beef products from Brazil has been lifted.
A multi-agency committee was set up immediately after the initial food alert to monitor the situation. The committee consisted of representatives from the DEH, the Department of Public Health, Department of Agriculture and the Ministry of Health.
Director of DEH, Roydell Carter said: “After review of recent relevant product documentations, the committee is now satisfied that the corned beef products within the Cayman Islands are safe to consume. It is anticipated that the product will be readily available again in the local supermarkets.”
Jamaica, Barbados and other countries have also lifted the temporary ban of the corned beef products.
The DEH and other agencies thank the public and food industry for their co-operation in this matter.
