No meat. They do allow pure foie gras, but if the tinned meat contains any pork products, it is confiscated. Cheese is ok.

Hi marcie,

Vacuum packed hard cheeses - OK.

Soft cheeses - no.

NO MEAT.

Pate de foie gras and foie gras in tins - OK

Not in jars.

You should also take a look at the US Customs website...I didn't until after I bought all that good salumi.

Everyone is correct though about cheese=good...meat=bad
