Individual State MPI Program Reports
FSIS conducts at least annual comprehensive reviews of State Meat and Poultry Inspection (MPI) programs and their requirements—including enforcement of those requirements—with respect to slaughter, preparation, processing, storage, handling, and distribution of livestock carcasses and parts, meat and meat food products, and poultry products.
 The 27 States are Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
 The two new MPI programs are Oregon and Arkansas. Oregon submitted documentation in July and Arkansas submitted documentation in October prior to beginning operations.
