Mexico may retaliate against U.S. meat labeling

Monday, June 10, 2013

Mexico’s government says it may raise tariffs on U.S. exporters as a retaliatory measure.

Mexico has accused its northern neighbor of flouting a World Trade Organization ruling on the labeling of meat and other products.

The ministry of Economy said it was “considering suspending preferential tariffs in a broad range of sectors, such as fruits and vegetables, juices, meat, dairy products, machinery, furniture, and home appliances.”
