From a statement issued by the Foreign Trade Promotion Office of Costa Rica (Procomer):

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the Department of Agriculture of the United States announced the lifting of the ban that was placed on beef imports from Argentina more than 13 years ago.

The action was taken following the publication of two favorable verdicts for the export of Argentine products. The first recognizes the Patagonia as "a region free of Foot and Mouth Disease without vaccination", allowing cattle meat and other products to be sold almost automatically. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved the risk analysis carried out in the north of Argentina, where the bulk of the supply of cattle is concentrated.
