Taiwan rejects 8.4 tons of Chilean cherries over chemical residues

Taiwan's Food and Drug Administration has ordered four shipments of Chilean cherries -for a total of 8.4 tons-  be returned or destroyed after failing border checks due to excessive levels of chemical residue. A full border inspection of Chilean cherries is being considered, the FDA said today.

Chen Ching-yu, a division chief at the FDA's Northern Center, said this is the first time any exporter involved in shipping over the non-compliant fruit has failed an inspection in six months. However, last season, the FDA blocked nine batches of Chilean cherries at customs, he said.

The FDA has been checking 20 percent to 50 percent of every shipment of Chilean cherries since February 28, 2022. It is evaluating whether to expand the inspections to cover 100 percent of every shipment.
