UPDATE: Chilean Blueberries New Fumigation Requirements

Dear Valued Customer,
As an update to our previous correspondence on above subject, we would like to inform that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has advised that they are aware of USDA's decision. They may evaluate entry on an individual basis but, as far as making a decision across the board on policy if they will allow this cargo, they advised that USDA would have to start conversations with the CFIA in Ontario as it is a matter of policy and regulation changes.
We were also informed by USDA that current in-transit permits may not be valid since the requirements have changed but we are waiting for confirmation from USDA Permit Unit. We will continue to maintain everyone informed of any changes or updates.
Thank you for your continued support,
