Turbot raisers in Shandong Province will file a lawsuit against the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration over its inconsistent food safety criteria for fishery products, the Qingdao Turbot Association said yesterday.

 

In late November, turbots were pulled from local markets after the administration announced it found carcinogenic antibiotics in their flesh.



The decision caused "huge economic losses" for turbot raisers in Shandong, the biggest base for raising the fish in China, according to an association official surnamed Huang. He said the details of the lawsuit will be announced next week.



"The lawsuit will target Shanghai's inconsistent fishery products criteria," said Huang.



He said China has three food safety standards for fishery products and only the "export standard" requires zero antibiotics in fishery products.



Huang said the "export standard" is only used to break some countries' "foreign trade barriers."



"Antibiotics below certain levels can be found in many fishery products in the domestic market," he said.



In late November, Shanghai food safety watchdogs issued a warning over turbot after small amounts of a cancer-causing antibiotic called AOZ were found in samples.



Some samples also contained other antibiotic residue, FDA officials said, adding that some fish farms use antibiotics to boost the low immune systems of turbot.



However, the levels were not high enough to cause cancer, and were only about 0.3 percent of the recommended dosage when AOZ is used to treat diarrhea, experts said.



"We fully understand the mood of turbot raisers who suffered a huge loss," Wang Longxing, head of the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration, said at a news conference on Wednesday.



He said the FDA's main role is to safeguard public health, and that is why the warning was absolutely reasonable.
