Around 27 percent of the seafood Americans eat comes from China and the FDA has found that these shipments are frequently contaminated. BUT, the agency only inspects about 2.7 percent of imported food. Thankfully, if it’s contaminated, it’s rejected. And of those rejected, 1,380 loads were seafood from Vietnam (for filth and salmonella).
A visit to Ngoc Sinh Seafoods Trading & Processing Export Enterprise, on Vietnam’s southern coast, will find workers standing on a dirty floor sorting shrimp. Besides the trash on the floor, there are flies crawling over the baskets of processed shrimp stacked in an unchilled room. Elsewhere you’ll find shrimp headed for the U.S. in dirty plastic tubs, covered in ice, “made with tap water that the Vietnamese Health Ministry says should be boiled before drinking because of the risk of contamination with bacteria.
Vietnam ships 100 million pounds of shrimp a year to the U.S. That’s almost 8 percent of the shrimp Americans eat.” Yum. Ngoc Sinh has been certified as safe by Geneva-based food auditor SGS SA. more
