US boosts testing of imported Canadian poultry
All shipments of meat and poultry products being
imported from Canada will be subjected to increased testing and
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) will increase testing
for Salmonella, Listeria Monocytogenes and E. coli O157:H7. According to the
agency, products will be held until testing is complete and products are
confirmed negative for these pathogens.
In addition, Canadian meat and poultry products will receive increased
levels of re-inspection by FSIS to confirm they are eligible to enter commerce
when presented at the U.S. border.
