Codex Food Contaminants Amendments


Posted By: Selerant RSA

 

On April 2015, a new revision of the CODEX STAN 193-1995 has been published, regarding changes on maximum limits for certain contaminants and toxins in food and feed.

This Standard contains the main principles which are recommended by the Codex Alimentarius in dealing with contaminants and toxins in food and feed and it includes only maximum levels of contaminants and natural toxicants in feed in cases where the contaminant in feed can be transferred to food of animal origin and can be relevant for public health.
