Debate on GMOs health risks after statistical findings in regulatory tests. (5/154)

We summarize the major points of international debate on health risk studies for the main commercialized edible GMOs. These GMOs are soy, maize and oilseed rape designed to contain new pesticide residues since they have been modified to be herbicide-tolerant (mostly to Roundup) or to produce mutated Bt toxins. The debated alimentary chronic risks may come from unpredictable insertional mutagenesis effects, metabolic effects, or from the new pesticide residues. The most detailed regulatory tests on the GMOs are three-month long feeding trials of laboratory rats, which are biochemically assessed. The tests are not compulsory, and are not independently conducted. The test data and the corresponding results are kept in secret by the companies. Our previous analyses of regulatory raw data at these levels, taking the representative examples of three GM maize NK 603, MON 810, and MON 863 led us to conclude that hepatorenal toxicities were possible, and that longer testing was necessary. Our study was criticized by the company developing the GMOs in question and the regulatory bodies, mainly on the divergent biological interpretations of statistically significant biochemical and physiological effects. We present the scientific reasons for the crucially different biological interpretations and also highlight the shortcomings in the experimental protocols designed by the company. The debate implies an enormous responsibility towards public health and is essential due to nonexistent traceability or epidemiological studies in the GMO-producing countries.  (+info)

[Determination of substances in polylactic acid products for food-contact use and mutagenicity of their migration solutions]. (6/154)

Specification tests defined in the Japanese Food Sanitation Law were conducted on 7 polylactic acid food-contact products. Moreover, the content and migration of other compounds were examined by means of ICP-AES, GC/MS and mutagenicity tests. All products met their specifications, and migration levels of heavy metals were negligible. No notable peak was observed in GC/MS analysis. Moreover, all products gave negative results in both rec-assay and the umu-test. An increase in the beta-galactosidase activity in the umu-test observed with the migration solution of soup bowl was due not to polylactic acid, but to the polyurethane coating.  (+info)

Safer food and more accountability from food companies are the goals of the Food and Drug Administration Food Safety Modernization Act, which could be approved by the Senate as soon as this week.. Its passage would lead to one of the biggest overhauls in food safety legislation since the 1930s, when the modern approach to food safety was established, said Robert L. Buchanan, professor and director of the Center for Food Safety and Security Systems at the University of Maryland.. Most of the legislation, Buchanan told MyHealthNewsDaily, involves making the machinery of food safety work better behind the scenes. Hopefully it will prevent recalls, outbreaks and contamination, and provide the tools for the FDA to do a better job.. The aim of Senate Bill 510, sponsored by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), is to keep large-scale recalls - such as the ones directed at peanut butter last year and eggs this year - from happening again, said Craig Harris of the Food Safety Policy Center at Michigan State ...

Food safety in New Zealand is a concern by the general public and the Government takes measures to regulate it. The estimated cost to the country in 2009 of the six foodborne illnesses campylobacteriosis, salmonellosis, norovirus, yersiniosis, STEC and listeriosis was NZ$161 million. The Government launched an annual Foodsafe Week in 2007 to highlight food safety issues. The Food Act 2014 is the primary legislation for governing food safety in New Zealand and is administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries, an amalgamation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the Ministry of Fisheries, and the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (now all defunct). This act supersedes the Food Act 1981 and makes some fundamental changes to New Zealands domestic food regulatory regime. The new act is primarily designed to drive an export led economic recovery for New Zealand, because the domestic food regulatory regime is the platform for exports. The Food Standards Australia New Zealand develops ...

Food Safety Focus (1st Issue, August 2006) - Food Incident Highlight. New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA) Advised the Public not to Consume Uncooked Oysters Imported from Korea. The NZFSA issued a reminder to the public on 6 July 2006 of not to consume uncooked oysters imported from Korea. The statement was made in response to several reported outbreaks in New Zealand that had been linked to the consumption of uncooked Korean oysters. Although all bags of frozen Korean oysters were clearly labelled as requiring cooking before consumption, this practice has not been consistently observed by the catering industry in New Zealand. Raw oysters are known to sometimes carry norovirus, which can cause gastrointestinal illness. Norovirus is commonly found in sewage-contaminated water. Ingestion of raw or inadequately cooked foods, including shellfish, salad and raw vegetables can pose a high risk of norovirus infection. Symptoms caused by norovirus may include nausea, vomiting, non-bloody diarrhoea ...
Food safety is, inevitably, a vital component of food security. However, the compliance with food safety measures (FSM) along the value chain remains elusive in most of the developing countries. The emergence of new modern market chains and increasing integration with the global economy has been putting pressure on the governments for better compliance with FSM along the food value chain. In fact, governments in these countries are now seriously looking for ways and means to improve the status of food safety in these countries.. The status of compliance with FSM in South Asia, in general, is not satisfactory and particularly in Nepal it is precarious and even worse. Nepal often has to incur heavy losses when consignments for exports are rejected due to lack of compliance with FSM. It appeared that the efforts taken by the governments in the past have been largely inadequate. The governments control and command approach to ensure food safety has not worked satisfactorily due to lack of physical, ...

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over the next several weeks, the U. S. Senate has an historic opportunity to take a major step toward improving food safety for all Americans. That is why a coalition of public health professionals, consumer organizations and groups representing victims of foodborne illness is sending the message that it is time to Make Our Food Safe for the Holidays!. Every year, millions of Americans are sickened from consuming contaminated food, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized and thousands die. Multiple outbreaks of foodborne illness over the last several years - from spinach to peppers to peanut butter products - have demonstrated that these outbreaks are not random, unpreventable occurrences, but are due to widespread problems with food safety oversight in the United States. This summer the U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of a sweeping food safety bill, which includes increased inspections of domestic food facilities and greater ...
As we told you last week, Democrats first attempted to attach the food safety bill to the short-term spending measure to keep the government running, but Republicans balked because they wanted to keep that measure clean. So Sunday night, the Senate raised it as an amendment to a completely unrelated bill from the House of Representatives-H.R. 2751, the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act!. Incidentally, quite a number of reports have gotten many of these details wrong.. The House bill, which began life as the Cash for Clunkers Temporary Vehicle Trade-in Program (very fitting given this basket case of a food safety bill), had been on the Senates legislative calendar since June of 2009. Suddenly, in a flurry of activity, the text of the old S. 510 was repackaged as Senate Amendment 4830. This was then proposed in the nature of a substitute for the House bill, which means the text of the Senate amendment was completely substituted for the original text of the House bill. This was ...
Dear Members,. We are pleased that the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act currently on its way to the President contains the amendment proposed by Sen. Jon Tester (MT) and Sen. Kay Hagan (NC) that protects thousands of small farms and small processing facilities from onerous and expensive new federal regulations.. We know that different people have different views on the Federal Food Safety Modernization Act as a whole some supported it, some opposed it, and others stayed neutral. Regardless of these differences, however, the Tester-Hagan amendment provides important protections for local producers. This victory is thanks to the thousands of emails, phone calls, sign on letters to Senators, letters to the editor, and other grassroots actions that you took part in.. The protections for small producers provoked an 11th hour flip flop on the part of the large industrial scale produce growers and processors. United Fresh and other large commodity groups that had supported the bill for over a year ...
Strengthened human capital through scientific and technical capacity building The project contributed to the strengthening of the scientific and technical capacity of over 100 professional (evaluators and risk managers) from the institutions pertaining to the SPS system in Colombia.

Food Safety Laws. As explained in our lead article, lawmakers have been trying to beef up current rules with bills like the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009 and the new Food Safety Accountability Act of 2010.. As we reported to you in April, we have been working to improve the Senates version of the FSEA. In particular, we succeeded in preventing language that would have set the US on a slippery slope toward harmonization with Codex, the deeply flawed attempt at international food standards. (Some other organizations have claimed credit for this key change, but they have incorrectly stated when the provision was inserted, which clearly shows they were not involved in it. This provision is a very important accomplishment that all of us concerned with natural health can share together-but, we hope, in a factual way!). Weve also supported two proposed Senate amendments: one by Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) that would exclude small farms and farmers markets from many of the proposed FDA regulations, ...
In place since 1979 RASFF provides national authorities with a tool to swap information on national measures taken to ensure food safety, and communicate (a legal obligation) on foods withdrawn from the food chain.. Member states alerted the system this week to four separate cases of the common pathogen Listeria monocytogenes​ and four for Salmonella​.. In the eyes of the increasingly cynical consumer, food safety, and the efficient checks and balances in the food safety chain, can not be underestimated.. But the number of food-linked alerts in the European Union leapt by over forty per cent in 2003 on the previous year, with the majority sourced in the old member states.. Alerts require immediate action (the case for the Listeria alerts in week 26) due to the risk of food contamination to the consumer, whereas for information notifications - as is the case for the aflatoxin notifications last week - the food product has yet to reach other member markets in the RASSF network.. A recent ...
President Barack Obama signed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act into law on January 4, 2011. The new law is the first major update to the food safety authorities of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in over 70 years. The FDA is charged with overseeing about 80 percent of the U.S. food supply - virtually everything except meat and poultry. The new law shifts the focus in food safety regulation from responding to safety problems to preventing them. This interactive graphic explains the key benefits that consumers should expect to see in five important areas. ...

This has nothing to do with food safety being a non-competitive issue, or whatever else industry types claim: It has everything to do with providing a market-based incentive for those in the farm-to-fork food safety system to brag about what they do.. There are good actors, there are bad actors: if trade associations were really concerned about their customers barfing, theyd stop saying everyone cares about food safety and support efforts to make such information readily available at retail.. But such microbiologically-safe claims are only valid with publicly available data: And theres no such thing as no risk - or no Salmonella.. As that foodborne Salmonella infections in Denmark reached a historic low, some Danish processors are, according to Steve Sayer of Meatingplace.com, claiming on labels their chicken is Salmonalla-free..

The drive for risk-based food safety management, systems and control has spread world-wide in recent decades. Since the term is still internationally undefined, its use and implementation vary, producing different realizations. In this Ph.D. thesis, microbiological risk assessment (MRA) was investigated as a basis for risk-based food safety management, which was defined as food safety management based on risk assessment in order to achieve an appropriate level of protection (ALOP). Governments are responsible for commissioning MRAs and also for setting food safety targets up to a certain point, but the practical management measures that need to be in place in order to achieve the targets are to be addressed by the operators. On the plant level, food safety is usually managed through regulation, quality assurance systems and a hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) programme with its prerequisites. In Finland, food safety management on the food plant level is implemented through an ...

Abstract: This study provides Enterobacter spp. lactose negative strains characterization susceptible of being wrongly identified as Salmonella spp. having into account its meaning for what concerns on food safety. More than five hundred feed samples for farm animal feeding were microbiologically analyzed according the Spanish Normative for feed, in which different media are accepted for detecting Salmonella spp. after performing preenrichement steps. In this study SS agar was chosen for differential isolation. Results show that 55% of those colonies supposed to be Salmonella spp. belonged to the genus Enterobacter when performing confirmation by means of API20E method and TSI/LIA tests, indicating that several strains of the genus Enterobacter have lost their condition of lactose positive microorganisms and becoming lactose negative, inducing confusion when trying to identify Salmonella spp. by traditional and reference methods. ...

About Food Contact Notifications. Food contact substances (FCS) are materials intended to come into contact with food, such as processing equipment, packaging and containers, and containers used in transport. Common types of food contact substances include coatings, plastics, paper, adhesives, colorants, antimicrobials, and antioxidants. Because molecules can migrate from the food contact material to the food, many countries regulate FCS.. In the U.S., the FDA has established a Food Contact Notification (FCN) Program within the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutritions (CFSAN) Office of Food Additive Safety, which regulates FCS. All FCS must be approved by the U.S. FDA through the process of FCN.. How Exponent Can Help.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that major foodborne pathogens cause 9 million illnesses each year. The number of foodborne illnesses motivated the FDA to create the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which Congress passed. The Federal Government drafted the FSMA in response to the continuing occurrence of foodborne illnesses caused by these pathogens. To illustrate the scope of the problem, the table below ranks the risks and costs of the 14 leading foodborne pathogens. Although passed by Congress in 2011, full . . .
C. Fig. 1. Examples of harvester surfaces A) catch plate, also known as fish scales, B) conveyor belt, C) lug (Photos courtesy of Renee Allen, University of Georgia).. To best minimize microbial contamination and subsequent fruit loss, harvest when the fruit is dry and during the coolest part of the day. Also, after the fruit is harvested, avoid dropping and vibrating the fruit as much as possible which can create bruises or other damage (Fig. 2). Do not over pack fruit in lugs or other field containers. The fruit should be no more than 4 to 5 inches deep so that it does not become crushed. Handle all fruit delicately and cool it as soon as possible by getting it out of the field once it is harvested.. Once the fruit is out of the field and into the packing facility, other food safety awareness is needed. But, the above information regarding blueberry harvester food safety can mitigate many potential problems before the fruit is packed and shipped.. ...

Food Safety and the Vulnerable Populations. Everyone eats, so everyone is at risk for foodborne illness. However, certain groups of people have a higher risk of developing foodborne illnesses and they carry a higher risk for serious episodes of disease. These groups include children, seniors, pregnant women, transplant recipients and other individuals with compromised immune systems, such as individuals diagnosed with AIDS, cancer or diabetes. Of the vulnerable groups, children under 5 and seniors over 65 are the ones at greatest risk for serious illness.. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that there are 31 known foodborne pathogens - the remaining 200+ pathogens are called unspecified agents. Most of the known foodborne pathogens have both acute and long-term health impacts.. While many cases of foodborne illness are mild, foodborne diseases can also be severe. Acute symptoms frequently include headache, muscle aches, vomiting, diarrhea, and sometimes fever. ...

Newly published research by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) has revealed big differences in how the safe use of nanotechnology in food and feed production is regulated in different parts of the world.. The research is based on information gathered by the JRC, RIKILT-Wageningen and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) from published literature and a dedicated survey. It reviews how the potential safety risks of nanotechnology in food and feed are managed in the EU and other countries and the effect any differences might have on international trade.. The findings show that only the EU and Switzerland have nano-specific provisions incorporated into existing legislation - for example labelling nano-based ingredients as engineered nanomaterials - while other countries rely on non-legally binding guidance and standards for industry.. The JRC researchers note that a wide range of nanotechnology applications for food processing and food packaging are in development and some ...
Every year hundreds of food recalls are made due to contamination. The main focus of this paper is to examine the effects of specific food events on consumers confidence in food safety as well as their preparedness regarding the United States food system. The food events studied in this are major food-borne illnesses outbreaks and recalls that have occurred since May 2008. The three events chosen included: the salmonella outbreak in jalapeno and Serrano peppers occurring in 2008, the salmonella outbreak in peanut butter occurring in 2009, and the E.coli outbreak in Nestle cookie dough occurring in 2009. An ordered probit model was used to measure the effects that these specific foodborne illnesses had on consumers confidence. The results revealed that the effect of the jalapeno and Serrano peppers and peanut butter significantly and negatively impact consumers confidence. The Nestle recall had a negative impact on confidence but was not significant. Hill, Jessica I.; Bharad, Abhishek Bhagwat;

In 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) promulgated the Preventive Controls Rule to control known or reasonably foreseeable biological, chemical, radiological and physical hazards in human food. This rule was the centerpiece of a series of rules mandated by the FDAs Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 (FSMA). The driving force for the rules and the law has been reducing pathogenic contamination in food. However, the Preventive Controls Rule defines a hazard to include any chemical, whether a contaminant or an additive, that

Self-service salad/dessert bars in restaurants can be popular but there are some food safety issues to keep in mind.. Hot food should ideally be served steaming hot, in hot food displays or over burners. However, in a buffet situation short periods of time at room temperature are acceptable. Chilled food should be kept chilled, either in refrigerated cabinets or on ice. Once again short periods at room temperature are acceptable.. Fresh food should be brought out regularly, and it should not be combined with the leftovers from the food being replaced. Each salad or dessert should have its own utensil. Use the one that is allocated to the item and dont mix the serving utensils. Hold the utensils by the handle and, when replacing, ensure that the handle does not come into contact with the food.. Never touch or taste food on display. If you see anyone doing this, report it to a staff member. Food should be protected from coughs and sneezes by a guard - usually a clear plastic cover extending over ...
If people cannot trace a product back to a supplier, the supplier has no incentives to keep their processes as clean and effective, in terms of food safety, as possible, said Caroline Smith DeWaal, director of food safety for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer group.. But the food industry and regulators chalk up to coincidence the rash of recent major food safety recalls and the consolidation of food production. One reason we are seeing this is because its becoming a common industry practice, said Dr. David Acheson, who leads the Food and Drug Administrations food safety efforts. Acheson said he knew of no evidence that outsourcing production is inherently less safe than traditional arrangements in which companies make what they sell.. Outsourcing makes financial sense for companies unwilling or unable to establish or expand manufacturing operations. Established manufacturers can use excess capacity to fill orders for others.. For some specialty products that require ...
Following a comprehensive review of the available evidence, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) expert Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain has published a scientific opinion reconfirming previous evaluations that the food processing contaminant acrylamide is potentially carcinogenic.. Acrylamide is produced in a variety of starchy foods that are cooked at high temperatures as a by-product of the Maillard browning reaction. The most important food groups contributing to acrylamide exposure are fried potato products, coffee, biscuits, crackers, crisp bread and soft bread.. Animal studies have shown that acrylamide and its metabolite glycidamide are genotoxic and carcinogenic. Evidence from studies on the effect of dietary exposure to acrylamide in humans is limited and so far inconclusive, but the Panel reiterated its view that the chemical potentially increases the risk of developing cancer for consumers of all ages when present in food.. The scientific opinion can be found in full on ...

Bruce Applegate, Ph.D., Professor, Center for Food Safety Engineering, Purdue University. Methodology for the detection of foodborne pathogens requires an enrichment step which is the time sink in most protocols.
