The “Four-Inch Regulation” or “Four-Inch Law” is a colloquial name for a regulation issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1975, restricting the sale of turtles with a carapace length of less than four inches. Exceptions are provided for scientific and educational use, export, and private sale.
The regulation was promulgated, according to the FDA, “because of the public health impact of turtle-associated salmonellosis.” There had been reported cases of young children placing small turtles in their mouths, which led to the size-based restriction.
