Is McDonald's buying beef in Mexico because it is cheaper and it does not meet US standards?

Regardless of whether it meets US standards or not, McDonald's is perfectly entitled to buy Mexican beef, and the fact it is cheaper is the logical choice. That has nothing to do with the US, since any beef used there has to meet standards before it can be brought in or used anyway. The Mexican beef would be used in Mexico, where it presumably meets the standards there; buying US beef and exporting it wouldn't make sense.
