Below is a bulletin from the USDA Animals and Plant Health Inspection Services
The government of Mexico has asked USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize the importation of mombin for consumption into the continental United States. APHIS has drafted a pest risk assessment that lists potential pests likely to remain on the commodity upon importation if no mitigations are applied.
APHIS shares draft pest risk assessments to determine whether stakeholders have information that might lead us to revise the draft assessment before we identify pest mitigations and proceed with official rulemaking.
The draft pest risk assessment for mombin for consumption from Mexico will be available for review and comment for 30 days. To view the assessment or submit comments, visit this website.
Comments are due to APHIS at PPQPRAcomments@APHIS.USDA.gov by November 13, 2017
