Notice of Availability of a Pest Risk Analysis for the Importation of Fresh Pitahaya From Israel

http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2015-0012

Summary:
 

We are advising the public that we have prepared a pest risk analysis that evaluates the risks associated with importation of fresh pitahaya fruit from Israel into the continental United States. Based on the analysis, we have determined that the application of one or more designated phytosanitary measures will be sufficient to mitigate the risks of introducing or disseminating plant pests or noxious weeds via the importation of fresh pitahaya from Israel. We are making the pest risk analysis available to the public for review and comment.
