Cross-border shoppers beware: Canada bans raw chicken, eggs produced in states including Michigan | CBC News

Cross-border grocery shoppers might get a surprise on the way back — raw poultry and egg products produced in Michigan and 20 other states can’t be brought into the country due to the threat of avian influenza.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says that all poultry products and byproducts that are not fully cooked and canned or hermetically sealed that were sourced, processed or packaged in certain U.S. states are not allowed to enter the country.

“These measures are being taken to prevent the introduction of avian influenza into Canada,” the CFIA stated in a notice posted online earlier this month.
