USDA Issues Notice of Decision to Authorize the Importation of Fresh Cape Gooseberry Fruit from Ecuador

September 19, 2019 USDA APHIS

“On April 20, 2018, APHIS published a proposed rule to allow the importation of gooseberry fruit from Ecuador, along with a pest risk analysis (PRA) and risk management document. After reviewing comments received during the 60-day comment period, we have determined that the phytosanitary measures outlined in the proposed rule and PRA will minimize the risk of introducing plant pests into the United States.”
