With imposition of Section 232 tariffs by the United States on foreign steel and aluminum, the European Union has published a retalitory tariff list. Included on that list are dark red kidney beans. News from the EU suggests there may be some modifications of the list, but timing for imposition has not been definitely determined. There is concern over interpretation of tariff codes for DRKs and white pea (or navy) beans. A U.S. agriculture group is working with the EU agricultural trade office in seeking clarification of these tariff codes.
