Very little fresh frozen beef and
mutton have been rereived from Ar
gentina and Uruguay during the past
few years, due to the European de
inand and the srarrity of steamers
equipped with refrigeration.
Practically all of the imported dried
beef conies from Uruguay. This is a
product peculiar to that country and
Argentina, large quantities of which
are consumed by their own people.
All kinds of meat and meat food
products are imported from Canada.
Such products are shipped to this
country by rail in the same manner fis
our own meats are shipped from one
State to another, The quality of
Canadian meats is good, and certain
products in which that country spec
lalizes are in great demand.
Since 1918 importations from Eng
land, France, Italy, Denmark, and
Spain have been gradually increasing.
Meats from these countries, however,
have little effect on the meat market
of this country, as the shipments are
small and consist mainly of meat deli
cacies, such as pate de foie gras, fancy
sausage, hams, etc., which are con
sumed by epicures and foreign resi

Chinese meats consist of hams and
sausage. The hams are cured in a
manner similar to ours, have a pecu
liar odor, are small, and of poor qual
ity, judged by American tastes. The
sausage is prepared from pork, and
is about the size of a thin frankfurter,
is hard and oily, and has an odor pro
nounced unpleasant to the occidental
nose. These products are consumed
exclusively by the Chinese, who con
sider them quite a delicacy.
The cases and cans in which foreign
meats are shipped vary in accordance
with the customs prevailing in the
country of origin. These containers
are marked or labeled to show the true
name of the product, the name and
address of the manufacturer and
the net weight of the contents. The
reading matter on the containers is
in the language of the country of
origin, and on some containers are
shown odd pictures of animals and
birds. The meats in most instances
are also marked tagged to show that
they have been properly inspected by
the Government of the country from
which they were shipped.
All Imported Meats Must l'as.
Under the import meat inspection
regulations, no meat or meat food pro
duct is eligible for importation uin
less accompaniedl by a certificate sign
ed by an official of the national gov
ernment of the countra from which it
is shipped, showing that the animals
had received an ante-mortem and
post-mortem inspection at the time of
slaughter, and that the product is
sound, healthful, wholesome, and
otherwise fit for human food, andl has
not been treated wvth and (does no.
contain any preservative, coloring
matter, or other substance not permit

States Department of Agriculture.
In othe'r words, meats from foreign
sources ,..ust, before admission to this
country, comply with essentially the
same regulations as domestic meats
that are shipped interstate. The

importer permission to have a prodluct
