International produce trade cheers Del Monte Fresh Produce in challenge to closure of US border against Guatemala cantaloupes
International produce businesses that move fruits and vegetables across borders are cheering for Del Monte Fresh Produce in its challenge to the Food and Drug Administration closure of the US border to the supplier of Guatemala cantaloupes.
Del Monte Fresh Produce gets cantaloupes in Guatemala from Productos Agricolas de Oriente from growing regions in the San Jorge, Asuncion Mita and Estenzuella areas.
Del Monte Fresh Produce's recall was in response to an outbreak of Salmonella Panama in 10 states across the US.
