image for Move To Overturn U.S. - Scotland Haggis Import Ban
Haggis enthusiast yesterday

A ban on Haggis imported from Scotland into the U.S. may be lifted in the next few days as E.U. and The United States meet to improve food trading regulations between the two Continents.

The importation of Haggis from Scotland (near England, E.U.) to the U.S. has been prohibited since the 1980's because there are minced sheeps lungs in the savoury offal puddings. The transmission of CJD and a human form of "scrapie" across species was feared by U.S. food inspectors.

New testing procedures and DNA checks mean that economy or value haggis (made of brains, eyeballs and assorted sphincters) can be given a full food certificate. This will please most American tourists who are known to love anything from Scotland.
