The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service have cleared nine Mexican poultry and meat processing plants for export to the US, reports Brownfield Network.

Citing Dow Jones Newswires, the Network reports USDA saying that the plants had made enough changes to record-keeping, sanitation and oversight to resume sending their products to the United States.

In late August, audits of a number of Mexican meat and poultry plants turned up enough irregularities that Mexico voluntarily shut down all meat and poultry exports to the US. There are still 45 Mexican plants that have to clear re-inspection by the FSIS.
