US suspends Mexican avocado imports on eve of Super Bowl

Mexico has acknowledged that the U.S. government has suspended all imports of Mexican avocados after a U.S. plant safety inspector in Mexico

The surprise suspension was confirmed late Saturday on the eve of the Super Bowl

The import ban came on the day that the Mexican avocado growers and packers association unveiled its Super Bowl ad for this year

The inspectors work for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services

After a previous incident in 2019, the USDA had warned about the possible consequences of attacking or threatening U.S. inspectors

The avocado ban was just the latest threat to Mexico's export trade stemming from the government's inability to reign in illegal activities
