Indiana Packers pork plant in Delphi, Ind., has been delisted by Mexico which has suspended imports from the plant, according to USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service. The reason listed was product defects.
"The plant was delisted by Mexico because on two instances Mexico found product defects at port-of-entry inspection," FSIS spokeswoman Bryn Burkard told Meatingplace. She noted Mexico currently operates under a "two strikes and you are out" protocol.
Burkard said FSIS currently is unaware of what specific product defects Mexico discovered in the Indiana Packers shipments. "Presently, FSIS has yet to see corrective actions; therefore we have not requested re-listment," Burkard said.
