Food Safety

BfR (former BgVV) endeavours to constantly undertake topical assessments of the risks associated with foods - be it from heavy metals, pesticide residues, toxic ingredients or the like (substance risks), be it from bacteria, viruses or fungi (microbial risks) or be it risks from novel technologies in food production (novel foods). Although the cause of BSE diseases has not been clarified with any degree of certainty, we are classifying them until further notice as microbial risks.
