Don’t Pack Pork

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

U.S. Department of Agriculture Public Announcement

If you fly Delta Airlines in the U.S. you will most likely get your connecting flight at the Atlanta airport. With approximately 300,000 passengers visiting the airport daily it’s a good platform for public service announcements.

Bringing in meat is not only restricted to fresh products, but also includes canned and dried meats.

Here is a clip from the USDA website when asked about bringing meat and poultry into the United States:

“No. The United State Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Meat and Animal Products Regulations prohibit travelers from bringing in fresh, dried, and canned meats, dehydrated soup mixes, and meat products from most foreign countries. If any meat is used in preparing a product, it is prohibited. The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) of the Department of Homeland Security monitors foods brought into the United States by travelers to make sure they conform to USDA and Food and Drug Administration’s regulations. Before you leave the United States, please access the CBP Information page. Commercially canned meat is allowed if the inspector can determine that the meat was cooked in the can after it was sealed to make it shelf-stable without refrigeration.”
