Video: US Grain Council responds to DDGS issues in Vietnam

Back in September, the Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture's Plant Production Department (PPD) found some insects in a container shipment of US distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS). Although the insects, the larger cabinet beetle (Trogoderma Inclusum LeConte,  are common in the US, they are on the quarantine list in Vietnam. This video explains how the US Grains Council responded to the issue and worked with the US Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to help improve the situation.
