Are there no Food Contact Materials Recalls?

June 9th, 2017

Every week there is an update on the major EU recalls for non-food consumer products, the so called RAPEX list. But why are there no Food Contact Materials (FCM) related recalls on #RAPEX ? The reason is simply that this legislation is not part of the New Legislative Framework. There are however recalls and the information can be found on another recall platform called RASFF. This platform is actually older than the RAPEX platform. You will also find food related notifications. The number of Food and FCM related recalls will surprise you.
