Legislative Yuan Holds Hearing on Ractopamine|美萊豬立院公聽 農委會前後任主委交鋒
Former Council of Agriculture Minister Chen Bao-ji attended a Legislative Yuan hearing on the Tsai administration's decision to lift the import ban on US pork containing Ractopamine. He told the lawmakers that he understands the dilemma current Chen Chi-chung is facing, but says the decision is at odds. Meanwhile, a hog breeder fire broadsides at President Tsai Ing-wen, saying she doesn't care about the impact because she has no children and that was criticized by the DPP lawmakers.
Our president doesn't have children. She doesn't have any descendant. Why do you have to say it so plainly? You're just making things up. I'm speaking. I hope you will show me respect.
Hog breeders fire broadsides at President Tsai Ing-wen, saying she doesn't care about the impact of lifting Taiwan's import ban on controversial leanness-enhancing agent Ractopamine because she has no children. During a legislative hearing on the 26th, hog breeders, experts, and former agriculture officials were invited to have their say.
Using this logic, it would be illegal for the Ministry of Health and Welfare permit imports. If anyone goes to the Executive Yuan to file a suit, you would have to revoke it.
During his tenure as agriculture minister, Chen Bao-ji oversaw the lifting of the import ban on US beef containing Ractopamine in 2012. Chen told lawmakers he understands the dilemma current Agriculture Minister Chen Chi-chung is facing, but says the Ministry of Health and Welfare's decision to allow US pork containing Ractopamine into Taiwan is at odds with the Council of Agriculture, which continues to list Ractopamine as a banned substance.
(Ractopamine) is a banned drug (in Taiwan) and no import permit can be granted. If this breaks down, future negotiations will be extremely troublesome.
Ractopamine is not allowed in Taiwan. After the Ministry of Health and Welfare sets an allowable limit, we can then take a look at other countries. I think this principle is applicable everywhere.
Chen Chi-chung, meanwhile, told lawmakers an allowable residue level for Ractopamine would be set based on Article 15 of the Food Safety Act. Chen also said the council is actively collecting opinion.
