Suspect US aquaculture operations test negative for melamine

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that independent tests of fish at two suspect fish farms, one in Hawaii and one in Washington state, have shown negative for the presence of melamine.

Tests began after it was discovered that the two commercial farms, which produce fish for human consumption, received vegetable protein concentrate contaminated with melamine. The fish feed from the Canadian manufacturer was also delivered to 196 fish hatcheries in the United States, where the fish fry are still being held, the FDA announced.

More information will be posted on the AVMA Web site as soon as it becomes available.
