BRASILIA, April 3 (Reuters) - Brazilian fresh beef exports fell 2 percent in March from a year ago, according to Trade Ministry data, although a government official said the drop was not due to a scandal involving sanitation inspectors last month.

Brazilian beef exports totaled $404 million in the period, the ministry said in a statement on Monday, adding that pork exports jumped 39 percent to $138 million and chicken exports rose 12 percent to $571 million.
