"EU food law needs to be fundamentally revised– EU Commission’s reform plans are insufficient"


foodwatch has called for a fundamental amendment of EU food law in order to better protect citizens from food scandals. The European Commission's reform proposal is completely inadequate. Recent cases, such as the scandal surrounding fipronil-tainted eggs, have shown, for example, that traceability along the food supply chain is not being consistently maintained.
