Australian authorities are warning that the sale of Indonesian beef products is illegal, and Australian beef processors have warned they may stop buying the products, after Australian beef processors raised concerns about Indonesian meat being stored for too long, particularly at the bottom of refrigerators.
An Australian-based distributor of Indonesian beef processors said it was working with a company based in Malaysia to resolve its beef shortage but warned customers it may halt shipments, citing Australian laws. The company said it had no specific dates or other details on when shipments could resume, but said the supplier had notified the Australian Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department and would provide the information within 72 hours.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott was forced to address the matter on Thursday when h평택출장안마e told parliament that A호 게임ustralian suppliers of processed and ready-to-eat meat had to maintain their supply on the mainland.
