Brazil's meat scandal isolated to a few plants -minister

BRASILIA, March 20 (Reuters) - Brazil's Agriculture Minister
Blairo Maggi said on Monday the government was working to show
export markets such as China and the European Union that the
scandal rocking its meat and poultry sector is isolated to just
a few plants and that regulation over the industry remains
strong.

Speaking to reporters outside the Agriculture Ministry in
Brasilia, Maggi said exports from 21 units implicated in the
scandal had been suspended.
