The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is considering separate requests to authorize the importation of the following goods.
- fresh mango fruit into the U.S. from Grenada (comments due by Nov. 8)
- fresh melon for consumption into the U.S. from Uzbekistan (comments due by Oct. 20)
- wheat for consumption into the U.S. from Lithuania (comments due by Oct. 20)
APHIS has drafted pest risk assessments that list the potential pests likely to remain on these commodities upon importation if no mitigation is applied. Comments on these assessments, including information that might lead APHIS to revise its assessments before identifying pest mitigations and proceeding with the commodity import approval process, may be submitted by the deadlines indicated.
