Food safety: EU experts confirm production of milk-products can resume only if they are safe
The European Commission is closely monitoring the situation as regards altered mozzarella cheese, and production of milk products at the affected establishment in Germany can resume only when it is verified that these products will be safe for consumption. This is the two-fold message that emerged from yesterday's meeting of EU experts (Member States and Commission) at the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCoFCAH). The German food safety authorities informed the other Member States and the Commission in detail about the controls carried out by its competent authorities and the corrective measures taken by the establishment. The Committee also discussed protection of laying hens, Aujeszky's disease in pigs and Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheatis (IBR).
