They are joined by neighbours and fellow beef exporters Argentina, which has curtailed imports from the only plant in Brazil that exported meat to the country; as well as Switzerland and Hong Kong, which has banned outright all imported Brazilian meat.

Meantime, President Michel Temer sought to maintain his country's reputation charging that the meat industry should not be judged by this incident.

The department assured South African consumers that officials at ports of entry have always been vigilant on meat imports from any country to ensure compliance with health requirements. "The possibility of manipulating the safety of fresh meat is unlikely and easily detectable", Haj Tawfiq told The Jordan Times.

On Friday, March 17, Brazilian police raided around 30 factories meat processing factories in Brazil, amid the allegations and a number of public servants are suspended.

"In addition, the Jordan Food and Drug Association is carrying out further tests on Brazilian beef by taking samples from the local market", Haj Tawfiq highlighted. Both have denied wrongdoing. Several countries announced a temporary suspension of Brazilian meat imports.

The European Union, South Korea and Chile have also suspended meat import from the country.

Kirk Market also released a statement on the recall, saying it had received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, but was removing the items out of an abundance of caution.

Furthermore, the department and MAQIS will step up monitoring by collecting samples from each consignment from Brazil and send them to the department's lab. The ones that haven't - which is basically most of the containers - we hope will follow on to their final destination and actually make it to that market.
