Argentina says to tighten controls on Brazil beef

BUENOS AIRES, March 21 (Reuters) - Argentina will further tighten controls on meat imports from Brazil amid an investigation into corruption of health inspectors and the alleged sale of rotten products, the agriculture ministry said in a statement.

The government of Argentina, a beef exporter itself, said in the statement only one plant involved in the scandal exports to Argentina. (Reporting by Caroline Stauffer; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
