USDA Announces a Notice of Affirmation of Revision of a Treatment Schedule for Hot Water Treatment of Mangoes

http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2015-0006

SUMMARY:
We are affirming our earlier determination that it was necessary to immediately amend hot water treatment schedule T102-a in the Plant Protection and Quarantine Treatment Manual to extend the applicability of the treatment to additional mango commodities.  In a previous notice, we made available to the public for review and comment a treatment evaluation document that described the revised treatment schedule and explained why we have determined that it is effective at neutralizing certain target pests.
