This draft scientific opinion was prepared by the EFSA Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain (CONTAM Panel), supported by the Working Group on quinolizidine alkaloids in food and feed.The draft opinion was endorsed by the CONTAM Panel for public consultation at its plenary meeting on 15 May 2019. The written public consultation was open from 23 May until 5 July 2019. EFSA received comments from three different interested parties. EFSA and its CONTAM Panel wish to thank all stakeholders for their contributions. The present report contains the comments received and explains the way they have been considered for finalisation of the opinion. The opinion was adopted at the CONTAM Plenary meeting on 25 September 2019 and published in the EFSA Journal.
