Restriction on imports from US States affected by Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI)
Updated April 12, 2015

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) has been discovered in the USA, most recently in Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. The CFIA advisory to travellers has been updated to reflect this information.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has implemented measures to protect Canada's poultry resources from an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza reported in poultry in the following states:

Arkansas
California
Idaho
Kansas
Minnesota
Missouri
Montana
North Dakota
Oregon
South Dakota
Washington
Wisconsin
Travellers should know that, due to this outbreak, all raw poultry and all poultry products and by-products that are not fully cooked, including eggs and raw pet foods, sourced, processed, or packaged from the above states are under restriction until further notice. You may not bring these items into Canada.

These measures are a normal part of Canada's animal disease control efforts and are consistent with international guidelines on trade.

Examples of restricted items include:

live birds and hatching eggs
eggs, yolks, egg whites (albumen)
poultry meat (other than fully cooked, canned, commercially sterile meat products)
raw pet foods containing poultry products
feathers
poultry manure and litter
laboratory material containing poultry products/by-products
Commercial imports are restricted from the specific quarantine zones within these states until further notice. Live pet birds may be brought into Canada with official certification from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Contact the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) for more information on the restricted areas.

There is no food safety risk associated with these products. These measures are being taken to prevent the introduction of avian influenza into other parts of Canada.
