The European Commission has asked Member States to monitor the presence of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) in food over the next two years. The move is in response to EFSA’s call for more data to be gathered on the levels of certain classes of BFRs in food.
At the end of January Poland and Lithuania reported cases of African swine fever in wild boars. African swine fever is a viral disease that is harmless to humans but deadly to pigs, and wild boars. Currently there is no cure and no vaccine. EFSA is evaluating the effectiveness of control measures to reduce the spread of the virus among wild boars, following an urgent request from the European Commission. EFSA will provide its scientific advice by 14 March 2014.
