Three consignments of a total quantity of 74,946 tonnes of Pork originating from Canada were found not to meet the legal requirements of food safety and lacked the reliability of the accompanying documentation (mainly the veterinary certificate as the main product safety document and the analysis certificates reporting the presence of Ractopamine, an unregistered and banned veterinary medicinal product for use in Albania and the EU)

Two consignments of a total of 52,257 tonnes of Beef originating from Brazil in a transit procedure on the territory of Albania with final destination Kosovo, resulted in substantial deficiencies and inconsistencies in the accompanying documentation of the goods (certificate of origin and veterinary certificate held different data). from shipping document and commercial invoice) which makes foodstuffs imported without confirmed identity and unsafe for consumption.

Previously, analyses performed on some of the consignments of imported meat products resulted in microbiological loading (laboratory analyzes reported the presence of Salmonella) and, consequently, the imported food product at these consignments is unsafe and unfit for human consumption. For this reason the NFA decided to sent back these cargoes to their country of origin.
