MEPs call for better protection in wake of dioxin scandal

MEPs have called on the EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, John Dalli, to fully investigate the German dioxin scandal, look into improved traceability and quality controls of animal feed and processed food and discuss compensation for farmers disproportionately affected by the food scare. In a debate initiated by the Liberal and Democrat Group (ALDE) in the European Parliament, Commissioner Dalli stated that there was no immediate health risk for consumers thanks to the EU traceability system already in place. However, he stressed the need to ensure that national control systems work effectively and welcomed Germany's cooperation for a visit by veterinary staff to assess the situation. He also called for a strict segregation between industrial fats and animal feed fats.
