Brazil's BRF reports wider-than-expected Q3 loss

SAO PAULO, Nov 8 (Reuters) - Brazilian food processor BRF SA posted a wider-than-expected quarterly loss on Thursday as trade embargoes and a drop in sales weighed on management efforts to turn the company around.

In its second set of results after a management shakeup following a string of bad financial and operating results, BRF said it lost 812 million reais ($218 million), higher than a forecast loss of 443 million reais.
