Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through Sept. 26 on the proposed extension of an information collection associated with the movement into or through the U.S. of untreated oranges, tangerines and grapefruit from Mexico en route to foreign countries. Such citrus must be shipped in sealed, refrigerated containers and insect-proof packaging to prevent the possible introduction of fruit flies. A transportation and exportation permit must be issued by an inspector for such shipments.
