SEOUL - South Korea announced today it will accept U.S. beef, ending a two-year ban. “The government of South Korea, through its Animal Health Committee and Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has completed its own vigorous review of U.S. beef and found it safe,” USMEF President and CEO Philip M. Seng said in a statement released in Seoul. “Today’s announcement that South Korea is ready to again open to U.S. beef should be the signal to South Korean consumers that they can be confident in our products.”
