APHIS Seeks Comments on Draft Pest Risk Assessment for Potato Tubers for Consumption from the United Kingdom

The government of the United Kingdom has asked USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize the importation of potato tubers for consumption into the continental United States.  Submit comments by July 20, 2017.APHIS has drafted a pest risk assessment that lists potential pests likely to remain on the commodity upon importation 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 rulemaking.

The draft pest risk assessment for potato tubers for consumption from the United Kingdom will be available for review and comment until July 20, 2017. To view the assessment or submit comments, go to http://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant-health/risk-assessment-consultation
