Wikipedia reveals ractopamine is a product of Lilly's Elanco division. It is a feed additive used to promote growth and to produce leaner meat.

"Regulatory authorities in 80 countries, including the EU, have banned ractopamine [4]. However, 27 countries, including Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Canada, the United States and many others, have determined that meat from animals fed ractopamine is safe for human consumption."
