According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) the Anaheim area of Orange County and the Artesia/Cerritos areas of Los Angeles counties have been quarantined due to detections of oriental fruit flies.
To prevent the spread of fruit flies through homegrown fruits and vegetables, residents of fruit fly quarantine areas are urged not to move any fruits or vegetables from their property. Fruits and vegetables may be consumed or processed (i.e. juiced, frozen, cooked, or ground in the garbage disposal) at the property where they are picked.
