U.S. processed beef products are now eligible for Japan. The FSIS Export Library for Japan has been updated accordingly, so this change takes effect immediately.
To be eligible for export to Japan, processed beef products must be derived from cattle slaughtered in the United States on or after Jan. 23, 2015. As with all U.S. beef products destined for Japan, processed products must be derived from cattle less than 30 months of age and must be from processing facilities operating under an approved AMS LT30 Export Verification Program for Japan.
