The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) is urging Congress to pass legislation to allow for the interstate shipment of state-inspected meat and poultry products. NASDA said, “allowing interstate meat sales is just plain common sense — no other food commodities inspected by state authorities are prohibited from being shipped across state lines.” Two bills (H.R. 1760 and H.R. 2315) have been introduced in Congress to allow for the interstate shipment of state-inspected meat.
