Regarding Radiation Due to the Tragic Events in Japan
At Weruva, we will continue to take all measures necessary to ensure the safety of our products.
Under the food safety policy of our manufacturing partner, there is particular scrutiny regarding contamination of radioactivity as it pertains to fishing in Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) area #61 as well as fish leaving Japan after March 11, 2011.
As a result, our manufacturing partner will not source any seafood or raw material caught in FAO area #61 (Pacific, Northwest). They will also not receive any Japanese fishery products which shipped from Japan after March 12, 2011.
All suppliers of fish products must provide certification and supporting documents to show the fishing area (FAO zone) in which the fish were caught, the fishing vessel name, the fishing duration and the fishing method.
The majority of our fish are caught local to the coast of Thailand where experts have stated there is no current risk. Nonetheless, the Thai government is testing fish that are caught in potential risk areas before the boat comes to port.
We will continue to work closely with our manufacturing partner regarding this issue to ensure safety for our pets. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us at Weruva for further information.
