Minister questioned after US bans Marine Harvest contaminated salmon from Chile.
Marine Harvest, the largest produced of Irish farmed salmon, has had its Chilean imports to the US seized and a ban placed on further imports of frozen and fresh salmon.
The previous contamination of Marine Harvest salmon in 2007 was discovered by the UK authorities in imports from Thailand to England and Ireland.
FIE has asked the Minister for Agriculture what testing is in place to protect Irish consumers from contaminated fish.
