Australia: No chicken, dairy, meat, fruit, or vegetables unless it's retorted/shelf stable (Such as La Briute meals) shmebeble had issues with MealMart- 26 meals
Fiji: Same rules as Australia.
Maldives: No alcohol
Mexico: No beef or cream cheese. Chicken YMMV.

United States: No meat, fruit, or vegetables.
Costa Rica: No raw meat (According to the Health Dept rep at LIR, it's meat on the bone that's an issue, he let us keep all the meat that had no bones - this may be relevant to other countries)
Nicaragua (land crossing): No issues with meat etc, but they taxed us for the 40 bottles of wine (I quickly mocked up a receipt on my phone showing the original price per bottle as $4)

Varna Airport, Bulgaria. Stopped many people from TLV flight to put bags through machine. Initially took away all out frozen chicken and cold cuts, but after my wife pleaded with them saying that we will have nothing to eat, let us take frozen chicken but kept the cold cuts. We later learned that they do this all the time, as they enjoy the taste of Israeli cold cuts.
