Ermm... actually, all shipped goods from Fray Bentos are Uruguayan and not Argentinian.

There is a mistake. The meat wasn't argentinian at all. Fray Bentos is in Uruguay, and the meat was product of Uruguay. Some argentinians have inferiority complex and lie anytime they can about anything, even this kind of minimun details.Pls correct that mistake.
Thanks.

Fray Bentos está en Uruguay, pero la marca Fray Bentos es usada por OXO en Paraguay, Argentina y Brasil, LEMCO se retiró de Uruguay en los 20's.

Many envy by the Argentine ... First they tried to seize Gardel, then ownership of the Tango, then take over the roast, then seize the dulce de leche ... And now come to confuse people by saying this is an Argentine Corned Beef? hahahah
This Corned Beef shown in the picture, was produced in the Anglo Fridge in the city of Fray Bentos, Uruguay.
Argentinos .... make something of your own and stop wanting to steal the history of others! We know they have underdone ... but if they can strive to achieve ... is just put "egg"

Mónica: Si mirás la foto verás que en la parte superior del tarro dice: Industria Argentina. La marca Fray Bentos. era de Liebig, y ella producía Corned Beef con esa marca en Argentina y Paraguay, pero en Uruguay no. Eso no quita que Fray Bentos fuera la cocina del mundo, y solamente en el mes de abril de 1943 se enviaron a Europa 16 MILLONES de latas de Corned Beef, pero con la marca ANGLO.
