State Officials, Cooperative Inspection Programs

 

AL | AZ | DE | GA | IL | IN | IA | KS | LA | ME | MN | MS | MO | MT | NC | ND | OH | OK | SC | SD | TX | UT | VT | VA | WV | WI | WY


Notes: California,  and Colorado do not maintain State meat or poultry inspection programs. They do perform custom exempt reviews for FSIS under cooperative agreement. Custom exempt operators slaughter or process for the owners of the product and return the product to the owners for their personal use; custom exempt operators do not ship any product out. FSIS is responsible for periodic reviews of these operations.

Utah conducts egg products inspection under a cooperative agreement.

State Officials may email us with requests for updates or corrections to this list.

Related Information: A comprehensive listing of all state food regulatory officials is available from the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO).
