In August 2013, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) granted equivalency to China’s poultry processing system. This determination allows China to export processed (cooked) poultry meat to the United States. Imports from China must be sourced from U.S.-slaughtered poultry or from other countries allowed to export raw poultry to the United States (Canada, Chile, and France, as of March 2015). USDA’s action in August 2013 was the culmination of the equivalency determination process that began a decade earlier.
