No wine-fed beef: Canadian Food Inspection Agency

Cattle breeder says CFIA is on a “power trip”

by

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has put a cork in a B.C. rancher’s plan to put wine-fed beef on the menus of Vancouver restaurants this fall. The agency said wine is “not an approved ingredient,” which will likely kill the burgeoning industry in a province where ranchers have struggled economically. Southern Plus Feedlot operator Bill Freding, who spearheaded the movement, told The Canadian Press that CFIA officials are on a “power trip.” He’s vowed to fight the decision.
