EU in Vietnam seafood alert

- Above: Tilapia

THE European Union has issued food safety alerts to four Vietnamese seafood exporters, whose shipments to several European countries have been found to contain banned substances. The companies, it is claimed, have all failed to pass food safety checks to enter the EU, according to the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF). Vietnam is a major exporter of mainly farmed seafood to the UK, Europe and the United States. Created by the EU in 1979, RASFF offers a round-the-clock service to provide notificati­on of food safety risks before they reach European consumers.
