Poultry from Switzerland
Effective Jan. 20, the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service reinstated the animal health status of the cantons of Neuchatel and Ticino in Switzerland as free of Newcastle disease. This action relaxes restrictions on the importation of carcasses, meat, parts or products of carcasses, and eggs of poultry, game birds, and other birds from these areas.
Plums from Chile
APHIS has determined that, in addition to the existing option of irradiation, plums from Chile may be safely imported under a systems approach for mitigation of the risk posed by European grapevine moth, with an additional option for fumigation with methyl bromide. Under this approach only sites registered with the national plant protection organization of Chile may export, registered sites must trap for EGVM according to APHIS-approved guidelines, all sites in regulated or control areas for EVGM must be inspected by the NPPO for EVGM, and all shipments of plums from Chile will be subject to inspection for quarantine pests. Plums from Chile may be authorized for importation under the revised requirements after Jan. 25.
