Canadians and frozen meat
      #1726992 - 03/17/17 01:37 PM (198.103.167.20)

Realize that the subject can be misconstrued in many ways. (especially given the cold snap we have just experienced )

Curious what other Canadians' experience has been with bringing food through the US mainland on to the BVI. Specifically meet products. I am always asked if I am bringing meet and produce into the US when I cross the border but never have. obviously wondering if I can bring some nice Cosoco Kirkland prime rib down to throw on the grill on the boat to save some money. Will it be confiscated?

I'm not a Canadian,nor do I play one on TV. I would think if they area asking about it, they are going to confiscate it.

It's at their discretion. Technically meat, dairy and fruit can't be brought into the US. I posted that last fall two boats checking into cruise bay had all their meat, dairy and fruit confiscated. I would not risk a expensive cut of meat.

Whatever Kim said is probably accurate. We researched the subject a couple of years ago. Certain foods cannot be brought into the US. I know that lamb is not allowed in. The list is available on the internet.

We have brought beef chicken soup yogurt with no issues on 2 occasions.

You should be able to prove the contents what ever you are bringing in. Keep labels from butchers packages etc.

Riteway has as good quality meat as Costco. Save yourself some hassles

The meat in Riteway in February was a bit suspect. The butcher they had, who really had done a good job, is gone. Although it may have been fine, I wasn't going to spin the roulette wheel on the "Mexican Beef" as the steaks were labeled.

I have found Riteway hit or miss. Lately seems more miss then hit. For the first time in 30 years I brought the steaks down. No issues and they were excellent!

He had issues bringing some left over jerky back into the US last trip...they thought it was pork...but once I showed him it was a turkey stick he had no issue. We found it very funny at the time as he missed the conch shells we had in out other luggage because he was so focused on 3turkey sticks
