US refuses entry to 7 shrimp imports in Oct. over antibiotic, additive and salmonella issues

 

 

In October, the US refused a total of 96 seafood entry lines, of which seven were of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics, unsafe additives and salmonella.

 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refused entry to four shrimp entry lines for residues of banned antibiotics, the Southern Shrimp Alliance reports. One entry line came from Indonesia, another one from India and two had its origin in China.

 

An entry line of shrimp from Vietnam was refused for unsafe additives and for being poisonous, while two entry lines of shrimp from two different Indonesian companies were refused due to the presence of salmonella.

 

Earlier in August, an entry line of shrimp from Indonesia was refused because of banned antibiotics, marking the first time that the FDA has refused shrimp from that country for the presence of veterinary drug residues since August 2015.  

 

During the first 10 months this year, the FDA refused entry to 43 shrimp lines for reasons related to banned antibiotics alone.
