Chicken & poultry (uncooked), eggs are carrying restrictions, to be safe, don't take it, buy it there. They were including pet foods containing poultry as well.

Friend just crossed into Manitoba from Minnesota and he was told no eggs. Minn has had an Avian flu epidemic with turkeys mainly and we think that is part of the reason eggs not allowed.

Hi,
We stayed at a Casino RV park for one night this past July 22nd at Suete St. Marie a twin city in MI before crossing over to Canada ; you can see Canada from there and its twin city with the same name which is connected by a bridge over the St Mary's river. We are FT since Feb 2015 w/ a 40ft 1998 MH. The Canadian immigration didn't asked us anything regarding food. But returning into the states after visiting Niagara Falls on the Canadian side, a US customs officer boarded our coach and checked inside our refrigerator/freezer and asked about raw eggs which we knew not to purchase while we traveled through Canada. We did "hard boiled" and marked the eggs "hard boiled" that we had. We also had purchased a quart of egg whites. Apparently he accepted that. He then looked inside our tiny attached freezer and asked what meat we had in there. At the time we didn't have any in there, so I told him that. We assume all border officers see all Pass Ports you have on you and any past Pass Ports you don't have on you. Who knows what, why or who they check. But being extensive travelers especially abroad (over seas) ... just answer their questions honestly and don't volunteer anything else. We never had any problems. In our experience, the USA has one of the strictest immigration procedures but they are there to protect us all. A tip; if you're retired, Keep telling yourselves "Your not in a hurry and relax" then you won't look suspicious or anxious. Both Canadian and US officers were actually quite pleasant.

We went to Winnipeg in June. Crossing the border we had to surrender our frozen chicken and eggs because of the bird flu thing.
Don't take any chicken, eggs or turkey. The exception being smoked foods or fully cooked.
Coming back to US they asked about veggies.

Yes, they were fine. They were formal, but courteous We were boarded twice-both times at Ferry Crossings. Part of our trip was while the 2 New York escapees were still at large.

We were quizzed at bridges or gates-but not boarded.

I think you should expect to be boarded, some of the folks will let you slide with the rules or limits-some won't. We had more wine than we were supposed to have-but because we were going to stay about 3 weeks-the officer let it go.

Thanks everyone for your input.

we are going to drive the extra 150 miles instead of dealing with the border.

Went to Canada by way of the Soo St Marie border point. The Canadian officer asked this question. "All I want to know is if you h a be weapons or pepper spray?" That was it. Coming back to USA the Americans asked about food.
