US reports only 1 shrimp refusal due to antibiotics in April

 
 

Only one of the 88 seafood entry lines refused in April by the US was of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics. 

 

The sole shrimp entry line refused for veterinary drug residues was from the United Arab Emirates, the Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA) reported.

 

As per SSA, the UAE-based Freshly Frozen Foods had one entry line refused for shrimp contaminated with nitrofurans on April 10. Nitrofuran is a drug used to inhibit bacterial growth.

 

After refusing 26 Indian shrimp entry lines in January due to the presence of banned antibiotics, the FDA reported refusing only six shrimp entry lines for the same reasons over the last three months. In February, no shrimp entry line refusal for reasons related to banned antibiotics was registered.

 

The table below summarises shrimp entry line refusals for reasons related to veterinary drug residues from 2002 through April 2019.
