any problem flying through CDG with meat?

I am wondering if we can fly from TLV into and out of CDG with cured meat, like salami, without any problem from the customs people. It is kosher certified. Thanks.

If you are planning to enter France, the answer is no, due to the EU regulations barring private importation of animal products. The various certification processes are only for commercial imports.

It is unclear whether those regulations cover goods in transit, if not officially entering the EU. I suspect a customs beagle would be overjoyed upon catching a whiff of salami, though
