    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Information from the State Phytosanitary Service (SFE) revealed that this month that 28,000 kilograms of garlic, 2,500 kilograms of peaches and 23 boxes of oranges were seized before they were able to enter Costa Rica without complying with the necessary health requirements, which could’ve jeopardized the health of consumers.

    The garlic came from China and was destroyed because it came with an infestation of mites that is not allowed in the country.

    Also seized and destroyed were 2,500 pounds of peaches from the United States, due to high levels of pesticide residue.

    In the case of the oranges from Panama entered the SFE mesh and seized 23 boxes came without phytosanitary permits, trying to get around the controls of SFE. Among other products that were denied entry, especially on the border with Panama, includes ginger, rice, and beans.

    However, these products were not only confiscated in Paso Canoas; Peñas Blancas, Puerto Limon, Puerto Caldera and Los Chiles also seized below par produce, in addition to the three airports.

    The goal is not only a focus on public health, but also to prevent the spread of pests that do not exist naturally in the country and could threatening food security and economic activity in the agriculture industry.
