The Mexican Agriculture, Livestock & Rural Development Ministry (SAGAR) has informed the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that it soon plans to implement a new law requiring that slaughter and package dates on all meat products being exported to Mexico appear on the export certificate, reports the U.S. Meat Export Federation.

The new requirement could be implemented almost immediately.

The USDA has told SAGAR that U.S. authorities will attempt to comply with the law.
