USA halts Spanish pepper, Colombian citrus imports

Tags: , ,


USDA Animal and Plant Inspection Service announced last week that it has suspended imports of Spanish peppers following the discovery of Mediterranean fruit fly in a number of consignments arriving at US ports.

Aphis said the ban also applied to overland in-bond transit movements of peppers south of 390 latitude and west of 1040 longitude.

Figures from Spanish exporter federation Fepex showed that of the 669,317 tonnes of peppers the country exported in 2014, 20,828 tonnes was shipped to non-EU markets. Exports to the US average around 1,000 tonnes a year.

Aphis has also suspended citrus imports, including oranges, tangerines, mandarins and grapefruit, from Colombia. All permits issued for this type of entry are being cancelled or amended when permits include other enterable commodities.
