China lectures 30 national meat suppliers

China has issued a warning to 30 countries that supply it with meat that it expects full compliance with regulations.

Some diplomats said they view it as a move by China to show that it is being fair in its ban on Canadian meat.

China suspended imports from Canada after it found flaws in pork shipment documentation from two plants, then ractopamine residue in pork from a Quebec company and then188 fraudulent Canadian Food Inspection Agency documents.

Those who attended the meeting with the Chinese said ractopamine and documentation seemed to be the main concerns.

Which raises the question about why we have heard nothing about the RCMP investigation into the fraudulent documents and who was culpable.
