UN/WHO Panel Issues New Food Safety Standards Covering Carcinogens, Bacteria Contamination

July 7, 2009: 08:56 AM EST
A commission created jointly by the UN and the World Health Organization recently adopted new standards for improving food safety. The 30 standards target carcinogenic ingredients, such as the chemical acrylamide produced in cooking carbohydrate-rich foods, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in food smoking, and Ochratoxin A in coffee. They also cover bacterial contamination in follow-up formulas for older infants and listeria monocytogenes, which can cause a fatal disorder, in ready-to-eat food. “The standards and guidelines … will make a positive impact on the lives of people around the world,” said the panel’s head.
