Szechuan Peppercorn Ban

 
Fine Peppercorns | Gourmet Peppercorns
 
From 1968 to 2005, the United States Food and Drug Administration banned the importation of Sichuan (AKA Schezuan, Szechuan, Sichuan, Schewan) peppercorns because they were found to be capable of carrying citrus canker (as the tree is in the same family, Rutaceae, as the genus Citrus). This bacterial disease, which is very difficult to control, could potentially harm the foliage and fruit of citrus crops in the U.S. It was never an issue of harm in human consumption. The import ban was only loosely enforced until 2002 . In 2005, the USDA and FDA lifted the ban, provided the peppercorns are heated to around 70 degrees Celsius (160 degrees Fahrenheit) to kill the canker bacteria before importation.
