Canada: CFIA says potato wart found in P.E.I. field

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has confirmed a case of potato wart in a Prince Edward Island field. In an email to CBC News, CFIA said the field has been placed under quarantine, with the full cooperation of the grower, to prevent the risk of spreading the fungus. The agency has not indicated where the farm is located. Potato wart poses no risk to humans or food safety, but it can be a serious disease for the infected potatoes, which become disfigured.
