EFSA consults on genotoxicity testing
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has opened a public consultation on a draft opinion on genotoxicity tests. The draft covers strategies for testing substances used in the food and feed chains, including pesticides and genetically modified crops. It is part of ongoing work to ensure that the EFSA’s risk assessment always reflects state-of-the-art science, the Authority says. Comments are requested by May 31st.
