Egypt will allow frozen poultry imports



Egypt has changed its import regulations for poultry and will allow whole frozen chickens, turkeys and ducks into the country, as well as processed poultry products, the US Department of Agriculture said.

Fresh and frozen beef shipments are limited to chilled or frozen boneless beef from animals less than 30 months of age produced under an export-verification program, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement Wednesday on its website.

Processed-beef products must be made from fresh/frozen meat at Egypt-approved slaughter sites in order to be eligible for import, the FSIS said.
