Current Recommended Antimicrobial Products Withdrawal Times for U.S. Pork Intended for International Markets 25Oct2013
Updated Withdrawal Times for Tetracycline (Feed-Grade/Water-Soluble) Products
A new pork trade certificate with Russia has been negotiated. This certificate sets guidelines for packers that are exporting to Russia. The Russian Product Verification Program (PVP) is a program to verify compliance with the Russian tetracycline standard. The purpose of the PVP program is to provide specific product requirements for marketing U.S. Pork and pork products to the Russian Federation under the USDA Export Verification Program. One of the product requirements is a 14-day withdrawal period for all soluble and feed-grade tetracycline products to satisfy Russia’s tetracycline maximum residue limit (MRL). Your packer may require some type of verification to show this withdrawal period is being met.
Important Note: Although the 14-day withdrawal period for tetracycline products (soluble and feed-grade) is to meet Russian import requirements, it is also the recommended guideline for all U.S. Pork exports. For more information, view the USDA’s Product Verification Program on Tetracycline Withdrawal.
