TORONTO, Ont. — Carriers moving animal feed should expect higher and more frequent levels of inspection and sampling, warns the OTA.
The Ontario Trucking Association learned of the move by the U.S. Homeland Security- Customs and Border Protection at a recent meeting.
Although Agriculture Quarantine Inspection has been in contact with animal feed producers in Canada to ensure prohibited ingredients are not added to feed, carriers should make sure they have an ingredient list along with their paperwork for presentation to border officials.
