People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) appealed to South Korea by letter last week asking Seoul to ban all U.S. meat products. AsiaPulse reports PETA urged South Korean Trade Minister Kim Hyun-chong to: "Please help protect your citizens by banning hazardous meat products from the U.S."

South Korea hasn't accepted U.S. beef imports since December 2003 but does import U.S. poultry, pork and other meat products.

In its letter, PETA also claimed the use of growth stimulants and antibiotics in U.S. livestock production is "putting consumers at risk of developing health problems," the article said.

"USDA, whose responsibility it is to inspect food, is filled with officials who do the bidding of the meat industry, so contaminated meat frequently slips into our food supply and sickens consumers both in the U.S. and abroad," the letter said.

How long do you think it will be before RCALF quotes are being used in PETA press releases and propaganda?
