The Seafood Industry
Certified Laboratories is a leader in the area of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) related seafood analyses and is recognized by every FDA District in the country.
Certified Laboratories can handle any type of analysis required by the FDA on your merchandise.
A major concern the FDA has with seafood is product decomposition. A shipment may have been held too long prior to freezing or refrigerating and the product may have begun to spoil. Cooking will sometimes hide this condition. Our trained organoleptic analysts, using a scoring system established by the FDA, can tell you whether your shipment will pass FDA standards. Certified Laboratories has on its staff trained organoleptic specialists who are accepted nationally by the FDA. We can help you clear shipments that have been automatically detained (e.g. shrimp, lobster tails, and various finfish). In addition, Certified Laboratories’ organoleptic experts can provide Quality Control workshops to foreign shippers who have had issues meeting the strict FDA decomposition standards.
