The TAFS forum has published a new White Paper entitled "Campylobacter - The role of poultry meat in Campylobacter epidemiology and mitigation measures along the food chain".
The aim of this paper is to present a fair appraisal of the current knowledge regarding epidemiology and intervention measures along the poultry food chain and to provide guidance for risk management decisions. It is not intended to promote or endorse any particular intervention strategy.
See https://tafsforum.org/other-topics.html for more details.
The TAFS forum has published two new white papers:
- Antimicrobial residues in condemned (waste) milk and its potential impact on public health/food safety
- The probability of the presence of antimicrobial resistant Salmonella spp. on food derived from chickens, the impact on human health, and preventative measures at farm level
Both papers are availabe for download on the TAFS website:
Please feel free to share. We are also looking forward to your comments.
The TAFS forum has today published its "Assessment of Paratuberculosis in the Food Chain" presentation, as a Youtube-Video and pdf for download.
In addition to the recently published full position paper on a potential relaxation of the feed ban, TAFS has posted today a shortened and simplified version for those who only want to know about the key arguments and take home message. As the full version, the short one is available at http://www.tafsforum.org/tse.html.
TAFS has published a new position paper, discussing the pros and cons of a potential relaxation of the feed ban that was introduced in the EU and elsewhere to break the BSE infection cycle. The paper lists key requirements that would need to be met before the feed ban for non-ruminants could be relaxed. As these requirements are currently not met TAFS concludes that maintenance of the ban is the only means to drive the level of risk towards zero.
The paper can be downloaded from the TAFS website at http://www.tafsforum.org/tse.html.
TAFS has broadened its scope: besides TSEs and Paratuberculosis, Influenza has been taken up as our third topic. An informational paper on this topic is published on TAFS' website.
