U.S. grown melons could soon be banned from Mexico
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Mexican government is looking into a proposal to permanently prevent American growers from selling melons in Mexico.
Mexican ag officials say they want to avoid salmonella-contaminated fruit from reaching consumers. Last year, the entry of cantaloupe from California, Arizona and New Mexico, was stopped.
Ag officials say the ban made it possible to sell more than 460-thousand tons of melons produced in Mexico.
