EFSA recommends lower tolerable weekly dioxins and PCBs in food
EFSA confirms the exposure to dioxins and PCBs, present in low level in food and feed, is a problem to health.
(EUROPEAN UNION, 11/22/2018)
The expert Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain (CONTAM) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has recommended lowering the tolerable weekly intake (TWI) for dioxin and PCBs, environmental pollutants present at low levels in food and feed.
Dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs are toxic chemicals that persist in the environment for years and accumulate at low levels in the food chain, usually in the fatty tissues of animals. EFSA highlights that their presence in food and feed has declined in the last 30 years thanks to the efforts of public authorities and industry.
