The Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O104:H4 outbreak in Germany in 2011 required the development of appropriate tools in real-time for tracing suspicious foods along the supply chain, namely salad ingredients, sprouts, and seeds. Food commodities consumed at locations identified as most probable site of infection (outbreak clusters) were traced back(More)
Der Nachweis von Acrylamid in Lebensmitteln gibt zu erheblicher Besorgnis Anlass. Acrylamid ist ein toxischer Stoff, der im Tierversuch u. a.neurotoxisch und Krebs erzeugend wirkt; es gibt keinen Anlass anzunehmen, dass diese Wirkungen nicht auch im Menschen auftreten können.Die tägliche Belastung durch Acrylamid in Lebensmitteln wird für den(More)

The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment wants to be a competent scientific adviser for politics, administration and the public in risk evaluation and risk communication regarding consumer products. Fields of research needed for this advice are compared with the research universities have to carry out. Examples were given.
Im Folgenden wird über die Ergebnisse der Arbeit der Task Force EHEC bei der lebensmittelseitigen Aufklärung des EHEC O104:H4 Krankheitsausbruchs in Deutschland berichtet. In der ersten Phase der Ausbruchsaufklärung ging es darum, das mit EHEC O104:H4 behaftete Lebensmittel zu identifizieren. Hierbei wurden von der Task Force parallel zwei Strategien(More)
A major problem in risk assessment is the quantification of uncertainties. A probabilistic model was developed to consider uncertainties in the effect assessment of hazardous substances at the workplace. Distributions for extrapolation factors (time extrapolation, inter- and intraspecies extrapolation) were determined on the basis of appropriate empirical(More)
All components of the soil-plant-atmosphere (s-p-a) continuum are known to control berry quality in grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) via ecophysiological interactions between water uptake by roots and water loss by leaves. The scope of the present work was to explore how the main hydraulic components of grapevine influence fruit quality through changes in(More)
The Scientific Committee (SC) developed an opinion addressing the issue of statistical significance and biological relevance. The objective of the document is to help EFSA Scientific Panels and Committee in the assessment of biologically relevant effects. The SC considered the distinction between the concepts of biological relevance and statistical(More)
