US rejects 2 antibiotic-laced, 12 salmonella-contaminated shrimp imports in July

 

 

The US refused in July 157 seafood entry lines, of which 2 were of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics and another 12 for salmonella contamination.

 

This was the lowest number of entry lines refused for antibiotic contamination so far this year, the Southern Shrimp Alliance reports. In the seven months through July, there have been a total of 27 shrimp entry lines refused for reasons related to banned antibiotics.

 

The two shrimp entry line refusals in July that were related to banned antibiotics were from exporters in India and China.

 

Further, the Food and Drug Administration reported refusing another 10 shrimp entry lines for salmonella in July, of which eight were from India.

 

While the total number of shrimp entry lines refused for veterinary drug residues has declined in 2018, the FDA has now reported refusing 60 entry lines of shrimp for salmonella as of July this year, of which it said the vast majority originated from India.
