On February 11, 2021, in a unanimous 5-0 vote, the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) terminated its Section 201 global safeguard investigation of U.S. blueberry imports, determining that increased imports of fresh, chilled, or frozen blueberries are not a substantial cause of serious injury, or threat of serious injury, to the domestic industry producing an article like or directly competitive with these imports.  The USITC will submit its report containing its injury determination to President Joseph Biden by March 29, 2021, at which time a public version will also be released.

This Section 201 investigation was initiated in October 2020, after the U.S. Trade Representative requested the investigation.  For additional details, see Update October 7, 2020.
