On February 9, 2010, the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced that it may ease import restrictions and allow the importation of fresh male summer squash flowers from Israel, fresh false coriander from Panama, and certain fruit (fresh figs, pomegranates and baby kiwi) from Chile. The United States currently prohibits the importation of these agricultural products to prevent plant pests from being introduced into the country. APHIS conducted pest risk analyses to evaluate the risks “of introducing or disseminating plant pests or noxious weeds via the importation” of these products. APHIS has made the pest risk analyses available for public review, and will accept comments on the analyses through April 12, 2010.
