Abstract:
A preventive action limit for dioxins in feed for broiler chickens and pigs was set to 2 pg toxic equivalents/g feed in Austria. This limit was effective in the detection of feed contamination from an imported mineral additive, and in the prevention of food contamination according to WHO tolerable daily intake.
