Ranchers in Mexico have been known to feed clenbuterol to livestock to help increase meat yields, even though it is prohibited.
Mexico’s national sports commission, Conade, said Wednesday that coaches are keeping a special watch on meat supplied to athletes ahead of the Rio de Janeiro Olympic games.
“We should be conscious and careful about the kind of meat that is selected” for athletes, said Conade director Alfredo Castillo. He said organic beef, chicken, fish and pork could be explored for somewhat safer alternatives.
