Rome, April 26 - A long-standing ban on the import
of Italian salami to the United States due to Federal Drug
Administration (FDA) rules against cured-pork meat imports will
be lifted starting May 28, an announcement by the Animal and
Plant Health Inspection Services (Aphis) said on Friday.
"This is a momentous event - one of the most important for
the production and export of Italian salami and the result of 15
years of (lobbying) work," Italian industry association Assica
said.
"Until now Americans have been forced to buy low-quality
imitations of Italian cured meats," said farmers' organization
Coldiretti.
Coldiretti estimates that the ban costs the industry more
than 250 million euros per year in lost exports.
