FSIS proposes to add Lithuania to list of countries eligible to export egg products to US

FSIS has determined the country's egg product laws, regulations, and inspection system achieve an equivalent level of protection as applied domestically in the U.S.

FSIS is proposing to add Lithuania to the list of countries eligible to export egg products to the U.S.

After extensive review, FSIS determined that Lithuania’s egg product laws, regulations, and inspection system achieve an equivalent level of protection as applied domestically in the U.S.

FSIS is requesting public comment before it makes a final determination. Should FSIS make a final determination to list Lithuania as eligible to ship egg products to the U.S., only egg products produced in certified Lithuanian establishments would be eligible for export to the U.S. All such products would be subject to re-inspection at U.S. points-of-entry by FSIS inspectors and FSIS would continuously evaluate and verify the equivalence of Lithuania’s food safety inspection system for egg products through document reviews, on-site audits, and point-of-entry reinspection, as done for all countries exporting to the U.S.

FSIS encourages interested stakeholders to submit comments here. For more information, please view the Federal Register notice.
