On October 2, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published its Preliminary Results of its antidumping duty new shipper review of certain preserved mushrooms from China.  This review affects entries made February 1, 2008 - January 31, 2009.

The Department of Commerce preliminarily determine that the sale made by Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable Co., Ltd., and its affiliated supplier Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable Co., Ltd., Pingyi Branch, was not made below normal value.  Thus, the dumping margin assigend to Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable is 0.00%.  If the Final Results do not change these results, entries of Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable preserved mushrooms will not require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties.

Keep track of the calendar!  If the U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not liquidate the entries within six months, by law, it must liquidate them as entered.  In this case, that would mean Customs and Border Protection would unfairly keep the cash deposit you paid.  If your entries are liquidated as entered, you can protest the liquidation and receive a refund of your deposits.
