Northern Ireland food monitoring report released with 2012
Northern Ireland Food Monitoring Strategy Committee released a 2012 food monitoring report.
The report includes regional food monitoring work carried out under the monitoring samples covering the entire food supply and distribution chain.
Most of the samples were monitored compliance with regulations and standards, similar to last year, the main problem is still the label identifies the problem.
Overall, 62% of microbiological testing samples and 24% of the physical and chemical testing of samples with satisfactory results. Lower rates of physical and chemical testing satisfactory results have inherent reasons.
Microbiological samples failed in only very small amounts of samples were found to exist pathogens pose a health hazard. Most physical and chemical analysis of samples are due to substandard and label information does not match the problem, rather than being detected harmful substances.
