The Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA) noted that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rejected a couple of shrimp shipments due to banned antibiotics, along with an incoming shrimp line rejection for veterinary drug residues and eight shrimp inline rejects from India that were contaminated with salmonella or filth.

According to the SSA, the three recently reported entry lines of shrimp rejected for antibiotic residues in January and February were from shipments from the following two shrimp exporters:

Mangala Seafoods (India), a company that was added to Import Alert 16-129 («Detention without physical examination of seafood due to nitrofurans») for its shrimp shipments on March 1, 2023 and was added to the Import Alert 16-124 («Detention without physical examination of aquaculture seafood due to unapproved drugs») for chloramphenicol on its shrimp on January 25, 2023, the Southwest Division of Imports rejected an entry line for shrimp contaminated with veterinary drug residues on January 30, 2023 and the Northern Border Import Division rejected an entry line for shrimp contaminated with nitrofurans and veterinary drug residues on February 1, 2023; and

Hoang Phong Seafood Co. (Vietnam), a company currently not listed on Import Alert 16-124 («Detention without physical examination of seafood aquaculture products due to unapproved drugs»), Import Alert 16-127 («Crustacean Detention Without Physical Examination Due to Chloramphenicol») or Import Alert 16-129 («Seafood Detention Without Physical Examination Due to Nitrofurans»), the Southeast Import Division rejected an incoming line of shrimp contaminated with nitrofurans on February 17, 2023.

The SSA also itemized another five line-of-entry refusals for salmonella-containing shrimp from one exporter in Indonesia and four different exporters from India.
