The USITC further determined that an industry in the U.S. is neither materially injured nor threatened with material injury by reason of imports of xanthan gum from Austria that Commerce has determined are sold in the U.S. at less than fair value.
All six commissioners voted in the negative with respect to imports of this product from Austria.
With respect to imports of this product from China, chairman Irving A. Williamson and commissioners Daniel R. Pearson, Shara L. Aranoff, and David S. Johanson determined that a U.S. industry is threatened with material injury; commissioners Dean A. Pinkert and Meredith M. Broadbent determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured.
As a result of the USITC's affirmative determination, Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of xanthan gum from China. As a result of the USITC's negative determination, no antidumping duties will be imposed on imports of this product from Austria.
The commission's public report "Xanthan Gum from Austria and China (Investigation Nos. 731- TA-1202-1203 (Final), USITC Publication 4411, July 2013)" will contain the views of the commissioners and information developed during the investigations.
