Products presented for export to China on or after July 1 must test negative for ractopamine through either the Ractopamine Residue Program or the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Never Fed Beta Agonist Program. China remained the third largest export market for U.S. pork products during the January-April, 2014 period.
