The Mexican government lifted its ban on poultry exports from 14 U.S. states, which was instituted 15 months ago in response to the spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in 2014 and 2015. A ban on poultry exports from Indiana remains in place. Mexico has been the largest market for U.S. poultry and poultry products since 2010. In 2015, U.S. exports of poultry and poultry products to Mexico reached $1.2 billion, accounting for 25 percent of total U.S. shipments, according to USDA.
