This nation's $100-million-a-year rose industry has been imperiled by a recent American anti-dumping ruling in favor of U.S. growers, Colombian industry representatives say. Colombian growers, who send an estimated 90% of their production to the American market, say a tentative decision last month by the U.S. Commerce Department could force them to hold back 50% of their rose exports over the next three months and could cost Colombians about 50,000 jobs.

The largest food-borne cholera outbreak to appear in this country since the beginning of a massive epidemic in South America was confirmed by New Jersey state health officials Tuesday. Eight people, from the cities of Jersey City and West New York, became ill earlier this month after consuming illegally imported crab meat from Ecuador. Four were later diagnosed as suffering from cholera, a potentially fatal disease whose symptoms include severe diarrhea and vomiting leading to dehydration.
