Korea likely to lift ban on beef with feed additive in mid-July

Korea is likely to allow certain levels of the animal feed additive zilpaterol in beef from mid-July, a Food Ministry official said yesterday, delaying by one month the lifting of a ban on the growth-enhancing drug.

Korea had said in April it would ease its zero-tolerance policy on zilpaterol-based drugs, such as Merck’s Zilmax, from June.

Son Seong-wan, a director at the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, told Reuters the delay was made upon China’s request.
