Our parent company is in Japan.  Due to the increasing egg price in the US, they are considering importing eggs to us.


While prepping paperwork, we came across this statement issued 4/5/2022 and some of us are interpreting it in different ways. 


"Fresh, unprocessed shell/table eggs and other egg products, void of the shell (i.e., liquid eggs, dried egg whites) originating from or transiting one of these prefectures, imported as cargo, are prohibited unless they are consigned from the port of arrival directly to an APHIS-approved breaking and pasteurization facility. An import permit and/or certificate are not required for these shipments when consigned to an APHIS-approved establishment."


I'm reading this as the eggs must go to an APHIS-approved facility  upon being unloaded at the dock. 
Someone else thinks the dock must be APHIS-approved.
Others have other ideas.

Straight to the facility


The language in in the previous sentence; from port of arrival directly to an APHIS-approved breaking and pasteurization facility. NO UNLOADING until it arrives at final destination e.g. breaking station



If they ARE Already pasteurized, you may bring them directly to your dock (with the proper permits of course)

Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

It's not the doxk but the facility where your eggs must go first. And they must be pre assingned to that location.

It's cheaper ti buy eggs from japan and right here in the us... give it a couple of months as there is an rv coming up.
