'Tit for Tat', or a ban based on genuine findings?

The US is restricting the import of luxury meat products from France. It may be an entirely genuine move based on honest research findings, or it may perhaps be a retaliatory measure. I cannot say, but the synchronicity of this move with steps taken only a few hours earlier by the WTO and the EU is curious, to say the least.
