Abstract


The EU has one of the highest food safety standards in the world – largely thanks to the informations when risks to public health are detected in the food chain by the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed. The new food production technologies and the continuing globalization of food production and distribution means the potential for international public health scares involving food contaminated with pathogens or chemicals. Analysis of the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) provides  determination of seasonal variations in contamination patterns. The RASFF annual reports, the information analysis have been summarized and discussed in this paper.
