Issues: (1) Whether a state’s ban on the sale of wholesome, federally approved poultry products based on the state’s disapproval of the way in which the poultry ingredient was produced imposes an “ingredient requirement” in addition to or different than those in the Poultry Products Inspection Act; and (2) whether Congress has pre-empted the field of poultry-product ingredients, as the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 5th and 6th Circuits have long held — or not, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has just held. CVSG: 12/04/2018.
