Italia e Grecia: la maglia nera della sicurezza alimentare?Pubblicato: 2007/07/31
A qualche giorno dalla istituzione del Comitato-nazionale-per-la-sicurezza-alimentare, arriva un richiamo a un maggior rigore in tema di sicurezza alimentare. E arriva dal Food and Veterinary Office . Le ispezioni da parte dei membri del Food and Veterinary Office, hanno evidenziato in tutte le regioni irregolarità concernenti protocolli di lavoro e ispezioni su animali e prodotti derivati come il latte.
Italy is in the bad books, while Slovenia is the teacher’s pet, according to European Commission’s latest reports on the state of EU member states food safety regulations. Out of all the EU countries, the report was most damning of Italy and Greece, where it said there are still little or no HACCP regulations in place. In Italy, some regions are in the process of formulating procedures to get in line with new regulations, inspectors said, but training programmes are scarce. Factories and plants in all regions don’t comply with regulations in regards to the post-mortem examination of animals, safety checks on raw milk and general operation practices.The inspectors also disclosed an occurrence of potential fraud in relation to the freezing beef that is re-packed and re-labelled with a new extended shelf life date, although they did not describe the case in their report.
