Ractopamine can speed up muscle building and increase the lean meat rate, which is a new type of clenbuterol. At present, countries around the world have different regulations on the scope of application of ractopamine in the breeding industry.

 

In 24 countries and regions such as the United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, and Australia, it can be used in livestock and poultry to improve the protein content and lean meat rate; but in the European Union, China, Russia, and other countries, such drugs are completely banned in animal husbandry. The 44904 plant belongs to AA Meat Products Inc., located in California, USA. It was allowed to export pork and beef products to China. The company is also the only one being banned of the 302 U.S. beef plants that have been approved to export beef to China.
