TAFS just released a new video with statements from Hans Jöhr, Mike Collins and Valentina Nolli about TAFS and the benefits of being a member. Please share widely.
Many consumers think of pork and poultry when it comes to AMR, but other sectors including aquaculture are affected, too. Yes, the sample size (5) is small, but against a background of very limited evidence, this paper adds at least a few relevant facts.
The TAFS forum has published two new white papers:
- Antimicrobial residues in condemned (waste) milk and its potential impact on public health/food safety
- The probability of the presence of antimicrobial resistant Salmonella spp. on food derived from chickens, the impact on human health, and preventative measures at farm level
Both papers are availabe for download on the TAFS website:
Please feel free to share. We are also looking forward to your comments.

The European Food Safety Agency EFSA has published a Scientific Opinion on the zoonotic potential of Scrapie in response to an earlier paper that had looked into the same issue (Comoy, E. E. et al. Transmission of scrapie prions to primate after an extended silent incubation period. Sci. Rep. 5, 11573; doi: 10.1038/srep11573 (2015)).
The EFSA report concludes that the paper cannot be regarded as providing evidence of the zoonotic potential for scrapie in field conditions.
