SAO PAULO, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BRF - Brasil Foods notifies that it has lodged an appeal with the Ministry of Agriculture contesting test results which have led to the special ruling of sales of in natura meats from one of its industrial units. BRF understands that this imposition has no basis in law and questions the technical-scientific criteria supporting the methodology adopted for such evaluations.
