BRASILIA (AFP) -- Brazil's agriculture ministry announced Sunday a top-to-bottom "audit" of its cattle industry as the world's top beef exporters try to stave off a growing crisis over a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy.

"We will review all procedures to be sure we are doing everything necessary," Celio Porto, international relations secretary for the agriculture minister, told the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper.

"It's like an audit by the ministry of agriculture on state services," Porto said, adding it would follow guidelines set by the Paris-based World Organization for Animal Health.
