Find out what the regulations are (customs website?). They will handle the rest at the border, if you are within regulations it will pass through. If not, you will be sent back a rotting stench on your dime.

I have some very good food items to ship to the US but due to the lenghty customs process, registration on both sides and the risk of getting back my items was just not worth it...though I have been able to send some ramen cups to some of my US customers. They were mostly packed with car parts like wheels.
The USDA FSIS [fsis.usda.gov] page might also be of help.
Whew! The DoA site certainly doesn't make things easy. It's the typical "unless you know exactly what you're looking for you ain't gonna' find it" type of site. (Though I did learn that there are about 540 peanuts in a typical 12 ounce jar of peanut butter :-).
