Recently, the Tianjin Municipal Market Supervision and Administration Committee sampled and matched 65 special batches of edible agricultural products, of which 3 batches were unqualified.
The sampled units, products and unqualified indicators involved in the unqualified samples are:
1. Pipi shrimp sold in Zhoupeng Aquatic Products Store in Xiqing District, Tianjin is unqualified, and the unqualified item is cadmium;
2. The sea crab sold by Yang Jingfu is unqualified, and the unqualified item is cadmium;
3. The sea crabs sold by Chen Shaojun are unqualified, and the unqualified items are cadmium.
Cadmium (in terms of Cd) is one of the most common heavy metal elemental contaminants. The National Food Safety Standards for Foods (GB 2762-2017) stipulates that the maximum limit of cadmium (calculated as Cd) in crustaceans of fresh and frozen aquatic animals is 0.5 mg/kg. Excessive levels of cadmium (in terms of Cd) in aquatic products may be an enrichment of cadmium in the environment during aquaculture. The harm of cadmium to the human body is mainly chronic accumulation. Long-term intake of foods with excessive cadmium content may cause kidney and bone damage.
In accordance with the provisions of the Food Safety Law of the People's Republic of China, the Xiqing District and Dongli District Market Supervision Bureau have ordered the operating enterprises to take measures such as removal and recall in a timely manner. The Tianjin Municipal Market Supervision Commission requested the above-mentioned regional bureaus to further investigate and deal with the operators of the non-conforming products and formulate corrective measures.
