BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi said on Monday the government was working to show export markets such as China and the European Union that the scandal rocking its meat and poultry sector is isolated to just a few plants and that regulation over the industry remains strong.
Speaking to reporters outside the Agriculture Ministry in Brasilia, Maggi said exports from 21 units implicated in the scandal had been suspended.
