Metronidazole, an antibiotic that is used to treat a variety of infections but can also cause neurological abnormalities, such as seizures in some people, has been found in honey tested in Canada. Globalfoodconsumers.org states that the honey has been sold in Quebec and Ontario, prompting the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to recall the product immediately.

‘Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by different types of fungi’, (ESFA). The substance grows on a variety of food and feed consumed both by humans and animals. Mycotoxins can grow on foodstuffs such as cereals, dried fruits, nuts, spices and animal feed.

There are several ways to prevent mycotoxins in foods, such as; Stop growth of infested fungi by re-drying the products, Removal of contaminated seeds, Inactivation

Pesticide presence in food is a great concern for many people throughout the world. Individuals wonder about the health risks associated with consuming food infected with pesticides and how to know the food they consume is safe.

Due to this alert, the product has been recalled by the Italian company. Testing for the allergen at the company base allowed for this issue to be flagged. There are severe health hazards for not correctly testing and labelling produce which is why the RASFF plays such an important role in the food and feed produce world. Soy is a common food allergy and depending on the severity of the allergy, can

Last week at the German border, a ‘serious’ level of aflatoxins were found in pistachio kernels from Turkey. The finding, which happened on 11th January 2022, meant action had to be taken on the Turkish goods. The pistachio kernels were rejected at the border and the consignments were detained, (RASFF). As border control flagged this issue as ‘serious’, it can be assumed that the levels of aflatoxins found in the pistachio kernels could be hazardous to consumers. The sampling found Aflatoxins total and Aflatoxin B1 in the contaminated goods. Consumption of aflatoxins pose a serious health threat to both humans and livestock,
