Exported Products Returned to the United States
Meat and poultry products certified for export may be returned to the United States in accordance with procedures described in FSIS Directive 9010.1, Export Products Returned to the United States.
If approached by an owner, broker or agent, inspection personnel should contact FSIS' Office of International Affairs (OIA) at (202) 720-3473, and provide information regarding the returned product as described in the directive.
OIA will decide whether specific shipments should be released into commerce or held for re-inspection as described in the directive. OIA will also coordinate with the owner, broker or agent and the appropriate district office, as necessary, to assure the product goes to the appropriate re-inspection site, control of product movement and product disposition.
