Antibiotics and Additives

Antibiotics and Additives

Since shrimp is America’s most consumed seafood and less than 0.5% of imports are screened for illegal antibiotics and fungicides, the Southern Shrimp Alliance supports increased funding and tools to enhance the testing of imported shrimp. The organization actively monitors and catalogs findings of veterinary drug residues in shrimp from food safety agencies around the world and has created tools for consumers and shrimp purchasers to identify the heightened risk of antibiotic contamination in particular supply chains. The Southern Shrimp Alliance also maintains and publishes data from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding entry line refusals of shrimp directed to the U.S. market.
