U.S. potato ban lifted

The ban on exports of Prince Edward Island potatoes to the United States will soon be lifted, the Canadian government announced.

It could be a matter of days or a couple of weeks.

The United States will be imposing new regulations to ensure potato wart does not contaminate potatoes destined for the U.S. market.

Some P.E.I. exporters say there may be devils lurking in the details of those regulations, but are happy exports can resume.
