The latest unqualified list of border inspection was released on the 15th, a total of 6 pesticide residues and sweeteners did not comply with the regulations, including 2 Chilean cherries, 2 Japanese fresh strawberries, 1 Chinese Pu'er tea, and 1 Canadian whey protein crisp energy bar.

Among them, the new extract muscle Co., Ltd. imported "POWER CRUNCH whey protein crisp lemon protein pie flavor" from Canada with a total weight of 69.12kg. Two kinds of sweeteners belonging to the same type of stevioside were detected, with a total dosage of 0.057%. According to the regulation, the amount of stevioside is less than 0.05%, which has exceeded the limit standard.

In a joint telephone interview with the media, the Food and Drug Administration said that according to the regulations, this whey protein crisp energy bar can use sweetener, but it must meet the limited standard. In addition, he mentioned that this whey protein crisp energy bar had previously been imported from the same product, but this was the first time that this batch of products had been detected to be unqualified recently. In addition to returning or destroying them, they would also refer to the local health bureau to find out if the same product sold in the market also had sweeteners exceeding the standard.

In addition, Japanese fresh strawberries and Chilean cherries were repeatedly detected to exceed the standard of pesticides, but this time new products with non-conforming pesticide residues were detected, which were imported by Shangjia Fruit Co., Ltd., Taiwan Xinguo International Co., Ltd., and Yuning Enterprise Co., Ltd.

Chen Qingyu said that among them, seven batches of Japanese fresh strawberries imported by a Shangjia Fruit Co., Ltd. within half a year were found to have excessive pesticides. In addition to returning or destroying unqualified products, they will also require the industry to submit reports on preventive and improvement measures.

Another piece of Chinese Pu'er tea imported by the national tea shop was detected with 0.02 ppm of pesticide Indek, which was also returned or destroyed in accordance with the regulations because it exceeded the limit standard.
