Japan issued an advisory requiring all celery shipments to be subjected to mandatory hold and test procedures due to a third maximum residue level (MRL) violation (Bifenthrin) reported on celery. 

All future shipments -- including those in transit -- will be tested by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare before being released to the importer.
