The two employees have since been released, but the embassy writes that APHIS has suspended the inspection of avocados and mangoes in Michoacán to guarantee the safety of the agricultural inspection team.

The statement did not detail how the two employees were attacked, where and for how long they were detained. The inspections will be suspended until the security issues are resolved.

Important Information About Avocado Inspection In Mexico

Why it matters: A vast majority of avocados in the U.S. are imported from Mexico. Most are grown in the state of Michoacán.

  • But as demand has grown, Mexican cartels have had growing involvement in the industry.
  • Studies have found the criminal groups heavily extort growers, intercept shipments and push for more avocado crops to be planted — which has heightened water supply issues and deforestation in Michoacán.
