On June 5, the government of Mexico published a list of retaliatory tariffs in response to the Section 232 tariffs being imposed by the U.S. on steel and aluminum imports from Mexico. The list includes a number of agricultural products, including frozen potato products.

Effective immediately, frozen potato products entering Mexico under Harmonized code 2004.1 will be assessed a 20 percent tariff. These products from Canada and the EU will continue to enter Mexico duty-free.
