Beginning June 22, 2009, changes were made to the USDA Permitting Process for FSIS-Exempted Food Products Containing Meat and Poultry Ingredients. Food products which were generally exempted from needing an Import Permit due to the fact that small amounts of meat and/or poultry ingredients were involved are no longer exempt.

Contact a Flegenheimer representative for assistance if you require an import license for previously exempt food items.
