USDA HALTS USED FARM EQUIPMENT FROM FOOT-AND-MOUTH DISEASE NATIONS
The U.S. Department of Agriculture will prohibit the import of used farm equipment from countries affected by foot-and-mouth disease.
The agency said equipment already on route to the United States from affected countries will be permitted entry only if cleaned and disinfected. This process must be USDA authorized and approved.
