APHIS Amends Import Requirements for Medfly Host Commodities from Chile

Effective immediately, to mitigate the risk and prevent the introduction of Medfly into the United States, APHIS is requiring all Medfly host commodities from quarantined areas to be treated for Medfly. Medfly host commodities from quarantined areas for which there is no approved APHIS treatment are prohibited entry into the United States. Medfly host material originating from areas in Chile not under quarantine for Medfly must have a phytosanitary certificate issued by Chile’s national plant protection organization, with an additional declaration that the consignment was produced in a pest-free area for Medfly.
