Título Principles for the evaluation of chemical hazards in food safety
Título original Principes d'évaluation du risque chimique en sécurité alimentaire [en francés]
Información bibliográfica Toxicologie-Pathologie professionnelle, 1st Quarter 2009, No.162, 7p. 13 ref.
Resumen When evaluating toxicological risks in the food industry, consumer safety has to be evaluated solely on the basis of animal studies for daily lifelong consumption. Hazards are often identified after the fact, following cases of mass poisoning. Furthermore, it can prove difficult to establish correlations between the increased incidence of a specific pathology and the exposure of the population to a toxic substance through food ingestion. For substances and food items subject to approval, guidelines established by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) which imply the specification of a daily permissible level (DPL), need to be followed. With respect to food contaminants such as mycotoxins, reliable toxicological studies that would allow the definition of a no-effect dose level are not always available. Consumer exposure therefore needs to be evaluated as precisely as possible.
