APHIS Seeks Comments on Draft Pest Risk Assessment for Soursop from Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico has asked USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize the movement of fresh soursop for consumption into the continental United States. APHIS has drafted a pest risk assessment that lists potential pests likely to remain on the commodity if no mitigations are applied.
APHIS shares draft pest risk assessments to determine whether stakeholders have information that might lead us to revise the draft assessment before we identify pest mitigations and proceed with official regulatory action.

The draft pest risk assessment for soursop for consumption from Puerto Rico will be available for review and comment for 30 days. To view the assessment or submit comments, go to https://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant-health/risk-assessment-consultation
