Mexico sets up rapid-alert system

The Mexican authorities have set up a rapid-alert system for emergency health concerns in food or feed. The Rari-Senasica was established earlier this month “to guarantee efficient response and allow consumers to obtain information on products that might represent some health risk”, the Mexican food quality and health service, the Senasica, says. The service has established a network including 322 inspection and verification points and 232 laboratories across the country with up-to-date technology affording rapid analysis that can detect threats, it adds. “The system promotes health measures and evaluation procedures in accordance with the UN WTO, and has been designed to established international standards.” The Senasica cites compatibility with the EU’s Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed. It monitors for pesticide residues, among other targets.
