Importing Egg Products and Shell Eggs
FSIS regulates the importation of egg products, which must originate from countries and plants eligible to export to the United States. Currently, Canada and The Netherlands are the only countries where plants are eligible to export egg products to the United States. Animal disease restrictions may be applied to some egg products by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
