Taiwan rejects/destroys 23 shipments of US agri products in 2019

Taiwan rejected or destroyed 23 shipments of U.S. agricultural products in the first six months of 2019 according to the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA).

Chemical residues were cited as the reason for 15 of the 23 recorded rejections. The second largest source of violations was food additives, with six recorded violations. Violations of this nature continue to pose a challenge to U.S. agricultural exports and exporters should be vigilant in the face of strict Taiwan adherence to food safety regulations.

According to TFDA’s website, there are a total of 334 shipments from all sources that were issued a non-compliance notice in the first 6-months of 2019. Taiwan rejected or destroyed 23 shipments of U.S. agricultural products, and TFDA makes violations public whenever they give an importer a formal non-compliance notice.

Chemical residues were cited as the reason for 15 of the 23 recorded rejections. The largest culprits were pesticide residues, including fluopyram on fresh broccoli and fruit powder (four cases), pyrimethanil on apples (two cases), and others.

The second largest source of violations was food additives such as benzoic acid on collagen powder and vitamin drinks (two cases).
