Food Safety News RASFF-Logo

A record high of more than 4,000 notifications were exchanged via the European Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) in 2019.

This past year, 4,012 messages were posted on the network which was around 10 percent more than the previous year. More than 3,500 concerned human food, 300 animal feed and almost 200 food contact materials.

Detection of Salmonella was the most common reason for reports in the warning system, according to the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL).

In my view it will not be as high in 2020 as the number of weekly notifications have been down although Poland has tried hard to keep the number of Salmonella reports up!
