Abstract

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) carried out a public consultation to receive input from the scientific community and all interested parties on the draft scientific opinion on the evaluation of allergenic foods and food ingredients for labelling purposes, prepared by the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA Panel) and endorsed by the Panel for public consultation at its Plenary meeting on 10 April 2014. The written public consultation for this document was open from 23 May 2014 to 08 August 2014. EFSA received comments from 30 interested parties. EFSA and its NDA Panel wish to thank all stakeholders for their contributions. The current report summarises the outcome of the public consultation, and includes a brief summary of the comments received and how the comments were addressed. The NDA Panel prepared an updated version of the Scientific Opinion on the evaluation of allergenic foods and food ingredients for labelling purposes taking into account the questions/comments received. The opinion was discussed and adopted at the NDA Plenary meeting on 30 October 2014, and is published in the EFSA Journal.
