European legislation ensures a consistent, high level of food and feed safety. The European Commission collects and publishes notifications of any serious health risks deriving from food or feed and any measures taken, e.g. withdrawing or recalling food or feed from the market in order to protect consumers.
Rapid alerts are also exchanged and published when any food or feed presenting a serious health risk is on the market and when rapid action is required. The alert is triggered by the identifier of the problem and published to enable all markets to withdraw the product or take any necessary measures in order to protect consumers.
