USDA Lifts Restrictions On Pork Imports From Poland

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) lifted its temporary restrictions on imports of fresh and frozen pork from Poland that were put in place on Oct. 18 due to concerns over export protocols following an outbreak of African swine fever (ASF).

ASF is a highly transmissible, trade-limiting pig disease. As ASF continues to spread rapidly across eastern Europe and China, efforts to keep the highly contagious disease out of the U.S. continue to increase. 

USDA continues to work to ensure consistency with the stringent, longstanding safeguards in place that protect U.S. animal health from ASF. USDA uses a strong series of interlocking protections against the entry of animal diseases like ASF, including restricting the entry of pork and pork products from ASF-affected countries or regions. 

In addition, USDA is working with Customs and Border Protection staff to enhance screening of passenger baggage coming from Poland or any ASF-affected country to ensure restricted products are not brought into the U.S.
