The U.S. Department of Agriculture is seeking comments on a draft pest risk assessment for the importation of baby kiwi — kiwi berries — from France.


The government of France has asked  the agency to authorize importation of baby kiwi for consumption into the U.S., according to a news release. In response, the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has created a pest risk assessment and list that describes potential pests associated with the commodity, according to the agency.


The documents will be available for review and comment until April 5.
