Summary ”RASFF notifications 2016” No. 2

The 2016 Summary of all notifications issued by the RASFF (rapid alert system for Food and Feed), and of interest to operators belonging to the feed sector, has been updated on June 30th 2016. For these first 6 months, already 444 ‘hazard/product’ combinations have been proposed.


Our object is not to be exhaustive. The option to include one or other notification shall depend on the assessment of the hazard and product. It is for this reason that microbiological issues related to fish or meat based food products are not registered. This is a well known issue.


The products intended for human consumption are retained, provided they meet the following conditions:

  • The foodstuffs may also be used in animal feed (rice or bakery products e.g.) and;
  • The identified hazard remains relevant even when the foodstuffs are used as animal feed.


As was previously the case, you can, from the headings of each column, select and sort on the basis of any information you may find relevant (e.g. all notifications considered as « Alert », all notifications relating to a group of products, all notifications concerning a same code for feed materials, etc.) The column « Remarks » was used, when appropriate, to complete the information in the RASFF notification.


Here below, we provide you with some of our general findings. Naturally this choice, like any choice, remains subjective, as the Excel spreadsheet allows for yet other possibilities.
