Under pressure after a US move against Chinese seafood and a huge recall of Chinese toothpaste in Japan, Beijing urged trade partners today to accept its products unless they violated contract terms or local regulations.

 

The Ministry of Commerce’s call came amid intense global scrutiny of the safety of Chinese exports which has been spurred by the discovery of contaminated food, dangerous chemicals in pet food and medicines and lead paint on toys.

 

"In principle, if you don’t find (any problem), Chinese goods should be allowed to be exported," said Wang Xinpei, a ministry spokesman in Beijing.

 

"Businessmen have already signed contracts based on mutual trust. They must have included terms of quality and usage in their contracts. Only if the shipments violated these terms or the importing country’s quarantine rules should they be stopped. Otherwise, they should be accepted."

 

The US Food and Drug Administration said yesterday it would not allow imports of Chinese farm-raised seafood unless suppliers could prove the shipments contained no harmful residue.

 

China is the largest producer of farmed fish, handling 50 per cent of the total value of global aquacultured seafood exports around the world. It is also the third-largest exporter of seafood to the United States.

 

US regulators have been meeting with China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine at least since May over catfish, after the states of Alabama and Mississippi - both major producers - banned imports of the fish, citing high levels of fluoroquinolones, an antibiotic.

 

Inspectors have continued to find residues of veterinary drugs and food additives not permitted for use in the United States in farmed fish products, an FDA official said.

 

The FDA said there was no immediate threat to public safety because of the low levels of the substances in farmed catfish, shrimp and other seafood, but health problems could develop if the items were consumed over long periods of time.

 

The Ministry of Commerce spokesman said China applied international standards and quarantine procedures to food exports.

 

He had no immediate comment on whether the ministry was addressing the latest concerns from the United States.
