Quarantine Regulations

Published on: 11/26/2014 11:52 AM

Shipping BoxAll shipments of agricultural products that enter or passes through California must be conspicuously labeled with the name and address of the shipper and receiver, the name of the country, state, or territory where the agricultural item was grown, and a statement of its contents.

Quarantines:  Every state and country has established quarantines in an attempt to prevent the introduction of damaging pests into areas where they don’t naturally occur.  It is unlawful to ship or transport any plant, cutting, animal, fruit or vegetable into California that does not comply with quarantine requirements.
