Sadie Keljikian, Express Trade Capital

Officials warn that a second explosion at the port in Tianjin, China on October 12th could have contaminated goods scheduled for export.

The FDA is requiring importers to submit entry and shipping documents for all human and animal food products, human and animal drug products, and medical devices that were originated from, stored in, or transmitted through the Binhai New Area industrial center or Xiditou Township of Beichen District in Tianjin. The FDA is taking these precautions due to the large quantities of hazardous materials stored in the area. The agency requires importers to report where exactly products were stored, how they were packaged and what testing is being done to ensure that they are not contaminated.
