WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said Thursday it will bar imports of fresh tomatoes produced by the farm Agropecuarios Tom S.A. de C.V., and Horticola S.A de C.V., and their subsidiaries over allegations of the use of forced labor.
CBP said in October 2020, Mexican authorities took action against allegations of forced labor conditions on the same tomato farm in Mexico. It was not possible to reach the farm immediately on Thursday morning.
