Raw export to Mexico to resume

Mexico has lifted its avian influenza import restrictions on raw poultry and eggs from 14 U.S. states destined for retail sale, and is expected to adhere to World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) guidelines for establishing eligibility dates for products originating in each state. SENASICA (Mexico’s National Service of Health, Food Safety and Quality) did not lift restrictions on Indiana, because of HPAI detection last December, which was the only finding in the U.S. since June 17. While bans are now lifted on poultry and eggs produced in Washington, Oregon, California, Minnesota, Iowa, Arkansas, Missouri, South Dakota, Kansas, Montana, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Nebraska and Idaho, the US and Mexico are still finalizing details on the language in the USDA Export Library which must be completed before shipment can occur.
