WAL-MART TIGHTENS BEEF SAFETY

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Wal-Mart Stores says it will implement additional beef safety measures to protect against food-borne illnesses. The new program requires Wal-Mart beef suppliers to implement controls to reduce potential contamination levels. Suppliers who do not operate slaughterhouses must comply with the new standard by June 2011, while beef slaughterhouse suppliers would have a two-step approach, with the first to be completed by June 2011 and the second by June 2012. Wal-Mart said it will work with suppliers to ensure the measures are implemented without additional cost to customers.
