PLANT-QUARAMNTINE IMPORT RESTRICTIONS
KINGDOM OF RUMANIA
Restrictions on the Importation of Fresh Vegetables
Owing to the fact that no specific mention is made of
fresh vegetables in the Rumonian plant-quarantine import rega-
lations, the matter was taken up with the Chief of the Rumanian
Phytopathological Service. He states that they are included in
the term "plants and parts of plants". Consequently, the pro-
visions of articles 9 to 12, pages 10 and 11 of B. E. P. Q.--422,
are applicable to fresh vegetables.
Importation of Apples from California Prohibited
The memorandum of November 18, 1931, to Chief Inspectors
and Collaborators, remains effective. In view of the fact that
this memorandum had very limited circulation, it seems desirable
to reproduce the text of it at this time.
Rumanian Order No. 254432 of August 19, 1931, reads as
follows, in translation:
"Being informed by the Ministry of Health, Labor, and
Social Welfare, that Californian apples are treated with arsenic
and therefore are injurious to health, we are requesting you
(Customs officials) to take all possible steps to prevent the
importation of these apples through any means."
Rumanian Order No. 275482, of September 7, 1931, reads in
"only apples from California are prohibited importation
and not those originating in other American States. However,
Customs officials shall request for each importation of apples

from any State of America, a certificate of origin, in order that
no apples from Calif ornia may be imported, and only after analysis
shall importation be approved if it is ascertained that they have
not been treated with toxic substances."
