Taiwan News reports Taipei City Office of Commerce initiated a plan on Monday encouraging 15,000 local restaurants, grocery stores, hotels and department stores to reject the purchase of U.S. beef offal, ground beef and spinal cords.

One day after the plan was announced, 200 companies have already joined the alliance. The Office of Commerce plans to distribute alliance badges for window display to all companies that apply between Nov. 11 and Dec. 31. Companies that do not join the alliance will be required to label beef with its country of origin and will be monitored.

The boycott follows the Taiwan Department of Health’s decision to allow U.S. beef imports last week.
