Approved U.S. beef products produced using artificial, natural pork and imported ruminant casings are now eligible for export to Japan. U.S. establishments that process or repackage imported natural casings must derive those casings from animals that were born and raised in countries other than the United Kingdom, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark, the Netherlands, Liechtenstein, Germany, Spain, Greece, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Finland, Slovenia, Poland, Sweden, Israel, Canada, USA, Brazil, Norway and Romania. Previously, U.S. companies were required to ship approved beef products and artificial casing to Japan separately.
