Ministry of Agriculture bans Fruits and Vegetables from the Dominican Republic

Director General of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development, Pierre-Guy Lafontant, announced a brief ban on fruits and vegetables coming from the Dominican Republic (DR) has been instituted. The ban is necessary because the Mediterranean Fruit Fly (MFF) had been discovered on farmland adjacent to the DR's Punta Cana airport. Haiti shares a border with the DR on the island of Hispaniola, and contamination could easily happen to imported produce arriving from the DR.
