Detectados huevos con altos niveles de dioxinas en cinco explotaciones alemanas

admin Avicultura, Blog Total Leave a comment  

 

En lo que va de mes se han detectado cinco explotaciones de puesta en Alemania que producían huevos con niveles de dioxinas entre 3 y 6 veces el permitido. El primer caso se detectó el pasado 3 abril en una explotación del länder Renania del Norte-Westfalia. Tres días más tarde se detectaron también huevos con dioxinas en otras dos explotaciones de puesta en el mismo länder.

La semana pasada se confirmaron os nuevas explotaciones con huevos contaminados, pero esta vez en un länder diferente, el de Baja Sajonia.

En todos los casos la detección de los huevos han sido por inspecciones de rutina, no se conocen las causas de la contaminación y no parece que haya una vinculación evidente entre las explotaciones afectadas.

Hace ahora algo más de un año, en enero de 2011, Alemania se vio envuelta en un escándalo en torno a las dioxinas debido a un caso de contaminación de los piensos que afectó a explotaciones fundamentalmente de cerdos.


Egg Shell Recycling Idea Gets Food and Drink iNet Support

admin Avicultura, Blog Total Leave a comment  

UK – Scientists and food industry experts hatched a plan this Easter to turn egg shells into plastics that could be used to manufacture anything from food packaging to construction materials.

They also hope to extract material from egg shells that may prove valuable in the pharmaceutical industry.

As Easter approached, The Food and Drink iNet revealed that it's plans to fund a research project at the University of Leicester which is looking at eggs and egg shells in a new light.

The project aims to find useful ways of recycling egg shells which are currently regarded as waste by food producers and which they have to pay to dispose of in landfill.

This is why the Food and Drink iNet is supporting the project with the university to discover innovative ways of using egg shells practically in a number of different areas to be seen as income generating by egg producers, rather than a financial drain on their business.

Scientists in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Leicester, specialising in ‘green chemistry’ and sustainable materials are looking at how to extract glycosaminoglycans, proteins which are found in egg shells. GAGs are used in numerous biomedical applications and could prove useful in the pharmaceutical industry.

They are also hoping to identify ways to use the egg shells as fillers which could be used to ‘bulk up’ different grades of plastic, with all sorts of applications from ready meal food trays to shop fittings.

The ultimate goal is to use the egg shells in packaging to protect egg products – giving a second lease of life to the egg shell in the very role it was created for … a true case of recycling.

“Egg shell is classified as a waste material by the food industry but is in fact a highly sophisticated composite,” said Food and Drink iNet director Richard Worrall. “The scientists at the University of Leicester have identified a number of uses for egg shell waste and the Food and Drink iNet is very pleased to support a ‘Collaborate to Innovate’ research project to examine egg shell recycling solutions.

“This could have potential benefit on many levels, both for food manufacturers and a much wider industry.”

The research team led by Professor Andy Abbott, professor of physical chemistry and head of the Chemistry Department at the University of Leicester, is working in conjunction with Philip Chatfield, director of Ashby de la Zouch project management company Integrated Food Projects. The project plans to involve a number of small and medium-sized egg-related companies in the East Midlands region.

Leicester hard-boiled egg and mayonnaise manufacturer Just Egg uses around 1.3 million eggs every week, creating around 10 tonnes of egg shells. Currently the firm spends approximately £30,000 a year sending about 480 tonnes of shells to landfill for disposal.

Managing director Pankaj Pancholi said the research could bring big benefits to the food and drink sector.

“If I wasn’t spending the £30,000 a year on landfill costs I could employ another worker or two part-time workers, or invest that money in R&D and innovation,” he said. “It would be great if the egg shells could ultimately be recycled to be used in the plastic packaging that we use for egg products, like our new hard boiled eggs in packs. This is a really exciting project.”

Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Food and Drink iNet has awarded almost £20,000 towards the project under its Collaborate to Innovate programme, which will include the sharing of the results with food manufacturers across the East Midlands and beyond. Interested companies are invited to get in touch.

Professor Andy Abbott, from The University of Leicester, said: “We specialise in researching and developing innovative manufacturing solutions around recycling technology. This project is focused on researching novel methodologies for recovering and re using a waste stream into a sustainable financially viable material supply locally. The R&D funding from the Food and Drink iNet is very timely and very gratefully received.”

The iNet-funded project aims to develop and validate the pre-treatment process of the eggshell needed to make it sterile; develop a method for the extraction of glycosaminoglycans from eggshell and analyse the products obtained; develop a post-treatment process to convert the eggshell into a starch-based plastic; test the mechanical properties, including the strength of the new material and make a variety of materials to optimise the eggshell loading and particle size.

The Food and Drink iNet, which is based at Southglade Food Park, Nottingham, with a team of advisors across the East Midlands, is managed by a consortium, led by The Food and Drink Forum and including Nottingham Trent University, the University of Lincoln, and the University of Nottingham.

It coordinates specialist support to stimulate innovation in the food and drink sector to increase competitiveness, sustainability and growth. The iNet is also a key partner for businesses, universities and individuals working and collaborating in the food and drink industry in the East Midlands and nationally.

La UE podría abrirse a las importaciones de pollo de Tailandia

admin Avicultura, Blog Total Leave a comment  

Parece muy probable que a partir del próximo 1 de julio, la UE levante la prohibición de importar carne fresca de pollo procedente de Tailandia. Esta medida se impuso en 2004 como consecuencia de los focos de influenza aviar altamente patógena H5N1 que se extendieron por el país.

Tailandia se declaró libre de la enfermedad en 2009. En marzo del año pasado, una misión de la Oficina Veterinaria y Alimentaria de la UE que se desplazó a Tailandia dictaminó que el país puede ahora proporcionar las suficientes garantías para cumplir con los requerimientos de importación de carne de ave de la UE.

Con el levantamiento de la prohibición, Tailandia podría nuevamente llegar a cumplir su cuota de importación de 92.610 tn de carne fresca de ave. Sin embargo, no está claro cuando, ya que el sector avícola tailandés se ha estado especializado, tras la prohibición, en la exportación de carne de pollo procesada, para lo que tiene una cuota de 160.033 tn.

New German Dioxin Scare in Time for Easter – Updated

admin Avicultura, Blog Total, Seguridad Alimentaria Leave a comment  

GERMANY – A new dioxin crisis has hit the state of North Rhine–Westphalia (NRW) as the toxins have been found in eggs from one organic farm, which supplied local supermarkets, as well as two smallholders selling directly to the public. The source of contamination has not yet been identified.

Just days before the Easter holidays, local authorities in North Rhine Westphalia (NRW) have closed an organic farm in the state following the discovery of dioxins in its eggs, reports Welt. The farm had been supplying local supermarkets.

In the middle of the pre-Easter egg season, inspectors in NRW have identified dioxin-like PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) in eggs on an organic farm with 25,000 layers, according to the state’s Ministry of Consumer Protection.

A ministry spokesman declined to identify the farm or its exact location but the unit has been closed.

In explanation, it was said that eggs from two of the farm’s four houses contained up to six times above the maximum limit for dioxin-like PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls). PCBs can be equated with the principle of dioxin, the spokesman said.

While the source of contamination has not yet been identified, the ministry statement said that an investigation is in full swing, including whether reporting obligations had been met.

The state authority said it had received notification of the issue on 26 March and immediately launched an official inspection. Dioxins are reported to have been found ‘well before’ this date. According to the spokesman, the Ministry was informed on Monday (2 April) about the official findings.

According to the report in Welt, elevated dioxin levels were measured in eggs from all houses but in two of the houses, the levels were not considered to be highly dangerous. The spokesman stressed that consumption of contaminated eggs will have no immediate adverse impacts on health but long-term impacts could not be ruled out as a result of long-term consumption.

The Consumer Affairs Ministry is currently planning a recall. Contrary to an initial announcement, contaminated eggs have been found in shops and several batches have now been recalled from sale.

According to the Ministry, daily output from the farm was about 23,000 eggs. Eggs from the affected farm were delivered for sale until 7 March.

On 5 April, the same source, Welt, reported that eggs from two smallholders in the same state, near Duisburg, have been found to contain high levels of dioxin. These producers, with 120 and 150 hens, respectively, sold eggs directly to consumers. Investigations are still underway to identify the source(s) of contamination.
