South Korea Detects Dioxin in U.S. Beef Consignment

South Korea has detected traces of dioxin in a U.S. beef consignment to Seoul, according to reports from meatingplace.com.//

The U.S. officials and the American beef industry are still unconvinced about the discovery of abnormally high levels of dioxin, at 6.26 picograms, which is higher than Korea’s 5-picogram level.

USDA spokesman Keith Williams said "Let's put it this way: If we found 6.26 picograms of dioxin [in our samples], public health officials would be all over it."

Now, USDA will elicit details regarding the testing procedure and the description of the dioxin that got detected. This finding is close on the heels of another such discovery made earlier in the month, where the Korean government detected bone chips in three consignments of beef from the U.S., and all the tainted shipments were rejected.

The USDA officials have pointed a finger at Korea, that this is merely an excuse to discard beef exported from U.S
