    A few years ago (6 maybe), SPUDS were banned from the USA to Canada! It was a "Long Entry" by cage for us..........

    Might depend on the state. I'm pretty sure you can't take apples out of Washington State because of the chance of apple maggots spreading to other areas.

    Just tell the CBSA agents the food you have with you.
    Most food is fine, however, there are issues with some meat and fruit.

    BTW I have more interesting food inspections at the Oregon/California Border
    and then flying back to Seattle from Hawaii

    Generally any fruit or vegetable that is grown in the state or province you are doing the crossing at will be banned going in either direction, also firewood is banned here at our BC, Washington border.
