Dear all,

 

Hi and good day to you.

 

Recently, I'm looking for recommended standard for food and water ICMSF. 

I got this info from one of my customer. Then, I search on the internet to verify the info unfortunately did not able to find it.

So,  can anyone please help me..

Where can I verify this info whether it is true or not?

Hi Wasila,

 

With the possible exception of so-called zero-tolerant species, food micro.limits (particularly Regulatory ones) tend to vary with country and type/status of the food.

 

Here are some ICMSF guidelines (quite old but I'm unaware of any icmsf updates) -

 

Attached File  icmsf2.pdf   802.91KB   45 downloads

 

You may attempt comparisons with the data in yr post.

 

I suggest you ask yr customer to provide a specific link/reference(s) to the source(s) of their data.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
