Kuwait Lifts Ban On Beef Imports

US - On December 26, 2004, Kuwait became the first country among the four Arab Gulf Cooperation (GCC) Countries that banned U.S. beef imports in late 2003, to lift the said ban on all beef imports originating from the United States, with the exception of the State of Washington. The Kuwaiti decision on maintaining the import ban on the State of Washington results from the Food Safety Committee’s doubts on elimination of the BSE risk in the State of Washington.
