Noel Rogowsky : Does Canada do regulatory tracking of fraud
Jason Agustin : You mentioned about the processed cheese and cheddar cheese as not being food fraud in the US the way they are marketed, is there a country where this is considered food fraug though and therefore not sold at all?
Martha Carman : Canada: CFIA does frequent surveillance and issues reports; however, these reports are mostly about food safety (microbiological) concerns.
Omolara OKUNLOLA : There is a large scale of food fraud on the so called "novel foods" in Nigeria.
Ehsan ul Haq : In restaurants and catering, particularly for making sweets, various chemicals like ammonia, hydroxides are used without any measurements. Is there any threshold for such chemicals or their use is illegal at all?
Martha Carman : #2
Mario Araujo : #2
Omolara OKUNLOLA : What of sale of flavoured milk drinks that do not contain milk at all. can this be seen as food fraud
Kelly Gamble : We pack honey for retail, our sources being honey imported from Argentina and the Yucatan Peninsula. As you might imagine, our #1 question from consumers is how they know we are not using Chinese or otherwise trans-shipped honey. We of course test our honey to know that it is free from pesticides, antibiotics, other chemicals, that sugar ratios are correct, etc. And we test for pollen. What is the best resource to be able to compare the pollen test results with the regions from which we are importing? Thank you!
Martha Carman : Canada: Only if "Milk" is NOT clearly labelled as for what it is.
Maria Luisa Chillida : Hi from Spain
Reyna Resendiz : Good morning from Atlanta, GA
Samantha Van Ollefen : Hi Kelly Gamble! You could consider asking your supplier for a Certificate of Analysis. Ideally they're also doing their own testing to prove to their customers that their product is in fact what they say it is.
Samantha Van Ollefen : ... And a best case scenario would be that they're having their product tested by an external lab rather than in house!
Crystal Quezada : @Kelly Gamble, seconded Samantha's comment, we do a similar scope and a COA from supplier (by an external lab)
Ehsan ul Haq : intentional or unintentional deviation from the standard recipe by any food handler in catering if it causes health issue, is it punishable offense or is there other provision that addresses this issue?
Omolara OKUNLOLA : as a regulator, we rely on COA from suppliers
Bruce Perkin : Doug, does Eurofins use Fourier Transformation testing for ID? If not, then why not?
Omolara OKUNLOLA : Thanksforthe insight
David briggs : Thank you a great presentation
Emmanuel GonzÃ¡lez Barbosa : Thank you very much
Mahmoud Al-Husseini : what are the methods to inspect the extra virgin oil?
Deborah Beattie : Hello, can you please repeat your Patulin story
Sivaram Kumar Selvarajan : EMA on Rice . Is that also common ?
shiva swamy : What are the moral guidelines involved in adulteration?
shiva swamy : What is the most recommended Indian Raw Milk periodic verification time freqency?
shiva swamy : Can genetic modified food be used in food fraud?
Kelly Gamble : Thank you, Samantha and Crystal! Yes, most of our suppliers use Intertek for testing. Their reports utilize a statement from a Geoscientist to authenticate the pollen source. I was just curious if there is a resource that might be accessible to industry, or the general public. Thank you!
Peggy Galloup : USA. is not listing whitners (titanium dioxide) in dairy productsconsidered food fraud? is there a % allowed before an ingredientmust be listed.
Joeben Gubatanga : do you consider food fraud if the manufacturer did not declare they are using GMO raw materials?
Kelly Gamble : Thank you Simon and Dr. Marshall!
Samantha Van Ollefen : @KellyGamble Intertek is a highly reputable company. I think the main message to the public would be to rely on companies like yours who are testing to ensure their honey is a genuine product. Keep up the good work!
Ehsan ul Haq : may be it can be tested for the quantity of various fatty acids and functional components associated to extra virgin oil
Deborah Beattie : Thank-you appreciate that
Martha Carman : Ehsan: And the ratios of fatty acids, give insights!
Ehsan ul Haq : exactly
Ehsan ul Haq : lipid profiling is convenient i guess
Ehsan ul Haq : compare it with standard and results show it all
Reyna Resendiz : if organic product is not being handle as needed will this be consider food fraud?
Wasi Asghar : can you give some examples of on going risk assessment ,I mean what should be role of management define frequency od risk assessment
Noah Bogosia : Would you know of any case where a Eurofin client used a test result to sue a supplier?
Omolara OKUNLOLA : connection lost
