With a U.S. Department of Agriculture sanctions announced just two weeks ago on March 23, Border Produce Services LLC has now satisfied a Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act reparation order.

The sanctions were put in place due to the McAllen, Texas, company failing to pay a $2,460 award in favor of a California seller, and have now been lifted, according to a USDA news release.

Border Produce Services is now free to continue operating in the produce industry after gettting a PACA license.

Arturo J. Garcia, the responsibly connected individual named in the March 23 announcement, is also free to be employed or affiliated with any PACA licensee.

Border Produce Services lists jalapeno, serrano and poblano peppers and tomatillos as examples of produce it distributes to clients, according to a listing on the Prezi website.
