I picked up my four year ancestral entry certificate to the UK yesterday, and received with it this cheerful little notice (all punctuation errors as in the original):
IMPORTING MEAT AND MEAT PRODUCTS INTO THE UNITED KINGDOM
If you bring meat into the United Kingdom from countries which are not part of the European Union or European Economic Area you may only bring with you
No more than 1 kilogram of meat which has been cooked in a can or other hermetically sealed container
If you attempt to import more than 1 kilogram of meat or meat which is not properly cooked:
(1) The goods may be seized and destroyed as you enter the United Kingdom
(2) You may be prosecuted and, if found guilty you may be fined up to 5000 pounds or imprisoned for two years.
Only one kilo? Dammit, what am I going to do with the other 23 kilos of grampaw’s part-cured beef jerky in non-hermetically sealed containers in my luggage?
