Listing of States Without Inspection Programs

These States have given up their meat or poultry inspection programs, or both, as indicated in the table below. USDA assumed the inspection function of these plants in addition to plants already under USDA inspection. State inspected plants would normally qualify for federal inspection due to the "equal to" requirement for state inspection programs. All plants under Federal inspection are eligible to sell in interstate commerce.
