As per recent reports, it has been revealed that US Food and Drug Administration has raised concerns over the selling of imported Korean seafood. The FDA has warned that the food might be tainted with norovirus.
It has been reported that FDA is advising stores and restaurants across US to ban the use of Korean oysters, clams, mussels and some types of scallops.
It claimed this Thursday that the seafood and its products might be exposed to human fecal waste and thus be unhygienic to eat.
Moreover, it has been recovered that FDA exclaimed that Korea's seafood-safety program no longer abides by the standards set by them. The agency said, “A recent evaluation found problems with Korean sanitation controls that allowed human fecal material to contaminate seafood production in the country”.
However, Korean government officials said, “We will strengthen the monitoring of seafood production facilities, tighten sanitation controls, and ask the FDA to review its position”.
Ahn Chi-gook, an official at the Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, affirmed that they are aware that that a few seafood production facilities lack proper sanitation standards, but they will look to it that these facilities meet the standards from further on.
