Corned beef ban officially over

The re-call on Brazilian-produced corned beef is officially over.

Director of Environmental Health Roydell Carter confirmed the ban was lifted Tuesday (3 April) after he was contacted by authorities in Jamaica.

In a statement issued to Cayman 27 Mr. Carter said:

“The Cayman Islands Department of Environmental Health, in co-operation with the Department of Public Health and Department of Agriculture has investigated this matter and have agreed the temporary importation ban be lifted,” Mr. Carter said.

Meanwhile Kingston-based distributor Grace Kennedy said they are considering to produce its own corned beef in Jamaica according to a press release issued to Cayman 27.

CEO of Grace Foods Domestic Andrea Coy said:

“We prioritise local production and pursue every opportunity to do so, I have asked the Innovation Team to look at what it would take to produce corned beef at Grace Food Processors – our meat processing plant in Westmoreland,” The C.E.O said.

Kirk Supermarket and Fosters in Grand Cayman have also announced the return of corned beef to the shelves and deli.
