Stumbled across this on my travels this morning, and to my astonishment the US Government ban Scottish made Haggis. So I did a little research on this story and discovered that, not to my surprise Monsanto banned it. January 25th we here in Scotland and countless other people across the World celebrate Burns Night. See in the USA the giant in food Monsanto rule the American food chain and it’s in’s and out’s, what most American’s eat is served to them via GMO, Chemical engineering in food, making food with Chemicals, this is what my Country Scotland just banned and France accused the USA of poisoning the World with. I have proven this to the people who did not believe it at the time, are owned by Monsanto, what American’s put on their kitchen table is modified so badly it allegedly gives people Cancer and worse. This story is about Scottish people in the USA demanding Congress drop the law and allow Scottish made Haggis to be imported into the USA. For Americans who don’t know, there are a few things you should be made aware off 1. Scottish people don’t wear kilts every day and 2. we don’t eat haggis every night, it’s a yearly thing in our culture to Celebrate Rabbie Burns the poet, called ‘Burns Night’ But there are people who perhaps have it once a week. Most families have a weekly dinner planner, we try in my home to know what days we are eating what. We don’t have haggis on our planner but I should say many do.
This here explains Haggis and the culture behind it here: Burns Supper – what’s involved? Haggis is spicy meat, it’s no more than a hamburger or spicy steak in reality. Many think “Heww, disgusting” without even trying it, it really is palatable and actually good for you. We have it with mashed potato and mashed turnip. On Burns night we all may have Haggis in our homes, I have been at a full dinner where we ‘Address the Haggis’ and it’s all ceremonial and, well boring 😀 But I guess I really like all the Scottish traditions. Some blogs below about Monsanto and a ton of Tweets from Americans on the Haggis being banned in the USA. Full story below

This was written and petitioned by Richard Jefferis, an ex Scot from Californian, USA. For 45 years imports of Scottish haggis to the USA have been banned. I’m an English-Scottish expat with a fond love of Haggis, Scotch and Robert Burns. After moving to Los Angeles 14 years ago I was shocked to discover you cannot get Scottish-made haggis in the USA. It tears me up that I have to serve my friends a weak imitation of the real thing on St Andrew’s Day on 30 November and Burns Night on 25 January.
I have joined forces with Scotland Now to overturn the restrictions on the importation of Scottish haggis.
Perhaps you are already fond of the “Great Chieftan of the Puddin’ Race” or possibly an adventurous foodie, or any one of the 27 million Americans with Scottish ancestry interested in their cultural heritage. Generations of haggis-fed Scots have thrived and continue to thrive with haggis a part of their regular diet. Millions of Scottish people can’t be wrong.
Help us put Scottish haggis back on the menu!

Please consider lifting the export restrictions on Scottish-produced haggis so that millions of Americans of Scottish descent can enjoy this traditional, healthy dish.
