The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is authorizing the importation of commercial baby kiwi fruit (Actinidia arguta) from France into the continental United States. APHIS previously made a pest risk assessment and a risk management document available for public review and comment. No comments were received.
APHIS concluded that the application of one or more phytosanitary measures will be sufficient to mitigate the risks of introducing or disseminating plant pests or noxious weeds for imports of fresh baby kiwi fruit from France. This change is effective on September 26, 2023.
