TheDailyMeal: Foods You Can't Bring into the US (Plus Treats You Should)

2 of 13

Meat and Poultry

Even more intense than the restrictions on fruit and veggies are those on meat and poultry. You cannot bring most meat products in any form (fresh, dried, cured or canned) into the U.S. from most countries, nor can you bring any food products that have been prepared with meat. That includes bouillon, soup mixes and broths. The Customs department notes that canned meats are permissible except beef, lamb, veal, mutton, venison, elk and bison. Pork (except that from Mexico) can be allowed under tight restrictions and only if commercially canned and unopened. Also, we’re told (not by Customs, but by a traveler) that a small amount of pâté (declared) is allowed.
