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

Avian flu threat prompts ban on uncooked poultry products from 21 states in canada

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says there is no concern with food safety, as there's no evidence that avian flu can be transmitted to humans through cooked food.

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.

The policy is in place amid cases of H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI)  among birds in Canada and the U.S.

The ban is in effect until further notice, the CFIA says. The full list of states on the restricted list is available below.
