The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refused entry to 26 shrimp lines in August by the 25th of last month.

None of the refusals were for entry lines of shrimp for reasons related to banned antibiotics. Two of the 26 entry lines denied entry were for shrimp from India refused for the presence of salmonella and for being insanitary.

The low number of total seafood entry lines refused in August continues an unprecedented trend over the four previous straight months.
