Tainted Enzymes From India Make Their Way Around The World; Product Recalls Likely

November 4, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Advanced Enzymes, an Indian manufacturer of enzymes used to make beverages, baked goods, animal feeds and dietary supplements, has been found to be the source of globally-distributed products contaminated with a powerful antibiotic. The discovery is likely to result in widespread recalls. Distributor and custom formulator Specialty Enzymes (Chico, Calif.), which bought product from the Indian company, then sold enzymes contaminated with chloramphenicol to a company in Japan, which then sold within the European Union. Specialty Enzymes also sold products in the U.S. The FDA discovered and traced the tainted enzymes; no one knows how or why the contamination occurred.
