APHIS Seeks Comments on Draft Pest List for June plum from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has asked USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize the importation of June plum for consumption into the continental United States, subject to irradiation at an approved U.S. irradiation facility.  APHIS has drafted a pest list that lists potential pests associated with the commodity.

APHIS shares draft pest risk assessments and pest lists to determine whether stakeholders have information that might lead us to revise the draft assessment before we identify pest mitigations and proceed with official regulatory action.

The draft pest list for June plum for consumption from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines will be available for review and comment for 30 days. To view the assessment or submit comments, go to https://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant-health/risk-assessment-consultation
