A joint report published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and other EU agencies shows that decreased use of antibiotics in animals and humans leads to a reduction in antibiotic-resistant (AMR) bacteria.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has launched a public consultation for a draft guidance on the requirements for applications for novel food authorizations in the EU, and will hold a public webinar for stakeholders in March about the draft guidance.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recently published a scientific opinion that identified the most relevant persistent microorganisms in food and feed production environments to be Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, and Cronobacter sakazakii, as well as risk factors and interventions associated with these pathogens.
A recent study published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) as a supporting publication has revealed that certain genetic criteria may determine the food safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and could lay the groundwork for developing new methods to assess the risks of genetically engineered food and feed.
Based on a recent risk assessment conducted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), European consumers’ dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic is a health concern, with associated effects including different types of cancer, birth issues, and other issues.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recently published a guidance for animal feed business operators on the information required when submitting a request for approval of a feed detoxification process, which can be used to reduce undesirable substances in a feed product to comply regulations and allow it to be placed on the market.
After reassessing the food safety of the popular zero-calorie sweetener erythritol, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has lowered the acceptable daily intake (ADI) for the additive and reported that, for all groups the EU included in the assessment, acute and chronic exposure to erythritol is above the newly set ADI.
Campylobacter and Salmonella infections reported in the EU in 2022 remained below pre-pandemic (2018–2019) levels, according to the latest EU One Health zoonoses report, but the number of reported foodborne illness outbreaks increased by 44 percent in comparison to 2021.
A tool developed by European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) scientists allows for the screening of proteins in foods that trigger reactions in celiac disease patients, ensuring greater food safety. The tool could potentially be applied in a range of food safety areas.
