US rejects entry to 5 antibiotic-laced shrimp imports in June

 

 

The US in June refused a total of 118 seafood entry line imports, of which five (4.2%) were of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics.

 

Through the first half of this year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rejected a total of 25 entry lines of shrimp for reasons related to veterinary drug residues, the Southern Shrimp Alliance reported.

 

The five shrimp entry line refusals in June were from exporters in India and China.

 

Dongguan Ateier Import and Export Co. Ltd. of China had three entry lines refused for shrimp contaminated with veterinary drug residues on June 7.

 

Kader Exports Private Limited of India, on the other hand, had two entry lines refused for shrimp also contaminated with veterinary drug residues on June 13.
