Importing an FDA regulated food product that was previously refused by another country?

In accordance with the Food Safety Modernization Act, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will require all importers of products which require Prior Notice, including food and food for animals, to submit information reporting the name of any country to which the article of food has previously been refused entry.
As of September 6, 2011, importers must inform the FDA if any country has refused entry to the same product.  Please ask your suppliers to place a certification statement on each commercial invoice stating whether the products covered by that invoice have ever been refused entry to another country.  If the products being imported have been refused entry previously, the supplier must list which country or countries have refused entry.
