PMA SmartBrief | Jul 29, 2015

California officials fined six companies as much as $20,000 each for selling vegetables and fruits imported from China, Mexico, Taiwan and Thailand that were tainted by illegal pesticide residues. The companies, which are based in Los Angeles and San Mateo counties, ignored warnings about the imports, which included squash, lychee, ginger, longan, burdock root, fragrant pear, cactus leaves, cactus pears, purslane and taro root, the state Department of Pesticide Regulations said.
