Forbes Responds to Chinese Firm's Potential Purchase of Smithfield Foods


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04) released the following statement in response to Shuanghui International Holding's potential purchase of Virginia-based Smithfield Foods.

"As what would be the largest takeover of a U.S. company by a Chinese buyer, the potential purchase of Smithfield Foods by Chinese meat processor Shuanghui International Holdings warrants robust analysis and review to ensure the safety and security of America's citizens as well as the preservation of national economic interests, food safety, and environmental standards. I look forward to following that review process closely."
