Over 24,000 Pounds of Beef Recalled For “Not Being Fit For Human Consumption”

CHIBA, JAPAN – AUGUST 9: A customer looks at a U.S. beef product at a branch of U.S. owned supermarket Costco on August 9, 2006 in Chiba, Japan. The Japanese government lifted the ban on the import of U.S. beef on July 27, and the first shipment of cargo, which faced seperate inspections from both the Japanese Health Ministry and Agriculture Ministry, arrived on August 7. The ban had been in place since January 20, when inspectors found banned material in a shipment of veal from a U.S. supplier, just two months after lifting a previous two year import ban.
