MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican government says its beef doesn’t contain clenbuterol, hurting the defense of five soccer players suspended after testing positive for the banned substance.


A Mexican soccer official has said he believes the positive tests came eating contaminated beef, but the health department said Friday that cases of contaminated beef in Mexico are fewer than one in a million.


The announcement comes a day after the Mexican soccer federation removed goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, defenders Francisco Rodriguez and Edgar Duenas, and midfielders Christian Bermudez and Antonio Naelson from the Gold Cup team.

Ochoa, the most high-profile player, denied any wrongdoing.
