OJ Fungicide Results Come In, FDA Says 11 Samples Tested Positive For Carbendazim
We tested 11 samples (one sample per shipment) but two of those (Citri Agroindustrial and Sucocitro Cutrale) withdrew their shipments and took them back. The other nine shipments are in detention, and the companies have 90 days to either arrange for shipping back or for destruction. If they choose to make arrangements for destruction, FDA witnesses it to ensure it was done.- Joe Satran
Now that those companies are on import alert, any shipments will be "detained without physical examination," meaning that they go into detention automatically, until they can demonstrate that they are in compliance with our regulations (i.e, no carbendazim).
