LOS ANGELES , January 4, 2013 () – According to various media reports, the Mexican government might consider banning imports of U.S.-grown melons because of salmonella concerns, The Packer reported Jan. 3.

However, U.S. officials and shippers could not confirm any such ban.

The Mexican government agency SENASICA does more intensive sampling of fruit from U.S. shippers that previously exported products that tested positive for foodborne illnesses. However, according to exporters, no potential blanket actions against the U.S. industry as a whole have been reported.
