The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refused a total of 142 seafood entry lines imported in October, of which only 1 (0.7 per cent) was a shrimp entry line rejected for reasons related to banned antibiotics, the lowest number since 2013.

For the year, the FDA refused a total of 113 entry lines of shrimp products for reasons related to banned antibiotics compared to a total of 377 entry lines of shrimp products rejected through the first nine months of 2015.

The entry line refusal into the US in October due to antibiotics contamination had been sent by Vietnamese company Frozen Seafoods Factory No. 32.

Despite the small number of refusals for shrimp contaminated with banned antibiotics by the FDA, the Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA) stresses that that does not appear to reveal that the use of antibiotics has been eliminated from shrimp farming by certain exporting countries. In this sense, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reported that in October a shipment was rejected from Huy Nam Seafoods Co., Ltd. (Vietnam) for fluoroquinolones.

Besides, the CFIA announced that the Chinese firm Shunde Bangmin Aquaculture Farms (China) has been aded to the its Mandatory Inspection List for fluoroquinolones and shrimp exporter Falcon Marine Exports Ltd. (India) for nitrofurans.

In addition, the SSA revealed that of the 61 total shipments refused entry into Japan in October by that country’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare because of violations of the Food Sanitation Law, 7 (11.5 per cent) were for shipments of shrimp products contaminated with banned antibiotics (six of these shipments originated in Vietnam and one originated in India).

These 7 rejected shipments by Japanese government authorities belonged to the following firms:

  • Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation (Vietnam): frozen broken sushi ebi vannamei because of the detection of furazolidone;
  • Ngo Bros Seaproducts Import-Export One Member Company Limited (Vietnam): frozen nobashi vannamei shrimp because of the detection of furazolidone;
  • Cuulong Seaproducts Company (Vietnam): frozen PD vannamei shrimp because of the detection of furazolidone;
  • Trong Nhan Seafood Co., Ltd. (Vietnam): frozen IQF cooked and peeled tail off vannamei shrimp because of the detection of enrofloxacin; and
  • Asvini Fisheries Private Limited (India): frozen HLSO vannamei shrimp because of the detection of furazolidone.
