American Customs Question

posted by .

Is it illegal to eat dog meat in America? My American friend says that you cannot buy dog in American grocery stores, that it would be against the law.

Is it against the law to sell dog meat, or to eat it also? If my Korean grandparents send me dog meat by mail, can I get in trouble for having it here?

The regulations governing meat and meat products are very strict. You may not import fresh, dried, or canned meats or meat products from most foreign countries into the United States. Also, you may not import food products that have been prepared with meat.

The regulations on importing meat and meat products change frequently because they are based on disease outbreaks in different areas of the world. APHIS, which regulates meats and meat products as well as fruits and vegetables, invites you to contact them for more information on importing meats. You may write to:

USDA-APHIS Veterinary Services National Center for Import/Export (NCIE)
4700 River Road
Unit 40
Riverdale, MD 20737-1231

or call (301) 734-7830

    eating dog meat in America is considered animal abuse. it's weird because only dogs and cats and other house pets can be "abused" but pigs and cows etc can't.
