US refuses entry to 14 antibiotic- and salmonella-contaminated shrimp imports in March

 

 

The US in March rejected 135 seafood entry lines, of which five or 3.7% were of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics.

 

The Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA) said that the total entry line refusals of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics totalled nine in the first quarter of this year:

 

The five entry line refusals in March were all from China, involving three companies and two districts.

 

Also in March, the US Food and Drug Administration reported refusing another 11 shrimp entry lines because of salmonella, with all of these shipments originating in India. In January, the FDA reported refusing 14 shrimp entry lines because of salmonella, while in February, there were another 11 shrimp entry line refusals, also because of salmonella.

 

In the first quarter, these refusals totalled 36 entry lines of shrimp - virtually all coming from India. These refusals have been made at multiple ports throughout the country, the SSA reported.
