Title 7: Agriculture
Subpart A—Provisions Governing the Inspection of Eggs

§57.925   Inspection of imported eggs.

(a) Except as provided in §57.960, eggs offered for importation from any foreign country shall be subject to inspection in accordance with established inspection procedures, including the examination of the labeling information on the containers, by an inspector before the product shall be admitted into the United States. Importers will be advised of the point where inspection will be made, and in case of small shipments (less than carload lots), the importer may be required to move the product to the location of the nearest inspector.

(b) Inspectors may take samples, without cost to the United States, of any product offered for importation that is subject to quality determination, except that samples shall not be taken of any products offered for importation under §57.960, unless there is reason for suspecting the presence therein of a substance in violation of that section.
