USDA position on bringing foie gras through customs into the US (11/2011)

Completely confused by conflicting reports, I emailed the USDA and got the following response:

Dear Martha,

Personal use amounts of poultry products packed in hermetically sealed containers and cooked by a commercial to produce products that are shelf-stable without refrigeration, are allowed in passenger baggage.

Sincerely,
