Atlantic Veal & Lamb Inc. was founded in 1956. The company acquired Plume De Veau in 1998, becoming the largest veal processor in the United States. It operates from three facilities in New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. It is based in Brooklyn, New York. Atlantic Veal & Lamb is a member of a veal growers cooperative operating out of eastern Ohio.
Japan halted the importation of all U.S. beef on Friday, January 20, 2006, in response to the detection of bone material found in a shipment of veal from Atlantic Veal & Lamb. Bone material is considered a bovine spongiform encephalopathy disease risk by Japan. This halt in beef importation came only six weeks after Japan lifted a two-year ban that had been imposed in 2003. The company claimed that the shipment was an error, and noted that the product sent was legal in the United States.
