Safety Standards Same for U.S. Domestic and Exported Poultry

Trinidad and Tobago consumers can eat U.S. poultry with full confidence.  The United States takes food safety very seriously. All U.S. exports of poultry must, by law, be inspected and only poultry produced in federally-inspected plants and receiving the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) mark of inspection can be exported.

Products exported to Trinidad and Tobago are held to the same food safety standards as are products produced for the U.S. domestic market. The inspection and export requirements of the United States are based on science and result in poultry that is safe for consumption and exported to nearly 160 countries around the world.

Consumers in Trinidad and Tobago receive safe and wholesome food, and the growing popularity of U.S. poultry globally is a testament to that fact.
