FDA verdict on Honduran melons to be announced this week
The Agrolíbano company could learn as early as this week whether it will be able to resume exporting its melons to the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will notify it once the results of its analysis of the production system of the fruit in the affected finca are completed. Its exports had been banned due to a suspected outbreak of salmonella.
