BUSINESS NEWS: FDA may ease seafood rules August 8, 2008


Source of Article:


The FDA restricted imports of five types of Chinese-raised fish 13 months ago, saying many contained chemicals the U.S. doesn't allow for health reasons, such as long-term cancer risks.

Since then, China's government and seafood producers have stepped up testing and safety controls. The percentage of shipments testing positive for the drugs has dropped from about 25 percent to less than 6 percent, says Don Kraemer, deputy director of the FDA's Office of Food Safety.
