The article reports on the assurance from European Union (EU) Food Safety Commissioner Markos Kyprianou to take action against imports of Brazilian beef if the inspection from the Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) reveals continued shortcomings in their safety standards. An FVO visit in 2006 found evidence of several banned animal health products on Brazilian cattle farms. Brazil failed to implement many of the measures demanded by the FVO based on a joint statement by union presidents.
