MOA acts against illegal fipronil use in poultry farming

Upon the end of Aug. 2017, the Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China (MOA) issued two successive notices, announcing its decision to launch strict probes into illicit application of fipronil insecticides as veterinary drugs. This move mainly aims to prevent possible contamination in feed raw materials and finished products, and meanwhile strengthen pesticide application guidance and market monitoring.

 

It was reported in early Aug. that fipronil-contaminated eggs were found on supermarket shelves in nearly 20 European countries, including Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, even with certain amount sold from the Netherlands to Hong Kong. Fipronil, a chemical pesticide listed as “medium toxicity to human” by the World Health Organisation, is banned for use on animals destined for human consumption by the European Union, as well as the Chinese authorities.

 

In light of this sandal, the MOA orders regional departments to increase safety checks of poultry feed manufacturers, animal drug producers, and poultry farmers, to rule out any potential risks. As part of the campaign, feed producers are also required to choose raw materials strictly in accordance with related regulations like the Feed Material Catalogue and the Feed Additive Catalogue. Application of any materials not permitted by the two catalogues will be seriously punished.

 

Prior to this, the MOA had denied the possibility of fipronil-contaminated eggs entering the domestic market. “No eggs from Europe have been imported into the country and there was no risk of contamination from the potentially harmful insecticide,” said the ministry.
