APHIS Publishes Pest Risk Analysis for the Importation of Fresh Mango Fruit From Colombia Into the United States

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has prepared a pest risk analysis that evaluates the risks associated with importation of fresh mango fruit from Colombia into the United States. Based on the analysis, the agency has determined specific phytosanitary measures that growers, packers, and shippers must meet will minimize the risk of introducing plant pests and noxious weeds into the United States. APHIS is making the pest risk analysis available to the public for review and comment.

APHIS will consider all comments received on or before July 7, 2021. To view the notice, PRA, risk management document, economic evaluation assessment, and the comments that we received, go to http://www.regulations.gov, and enter APHIS-2020-0061 in the search field. After reviewing comments, APHIS will announce a final decision regarding the authorization of fresh mango fruit from Colombia in a subsequent notice.
