Honduras: FDA to supervise harvesting of melons.

Experts from the US Food and Drugs Administration will arrive in the country in October.

Monday, August 4, 2008

The objective is to verify whether or not the melon farms are in compliance with the security health measures required by the United States.

In March, the FDA suspended the exportation of melons to the United States by the Montelibano Company and by the Lavaderos company on the 4th of June, because it allegedly found that their products were contaminated with salmonella.
