Heavy metals survey published by FSA

Friday 12 January 2007

A survey of the concentrations of eight metals and other elements in a variety of cultivated and wild foods has today been published by the Agency.

The survey was undertaken to provide data for a future review by the European Commission of permitted levels of these metals in our diet.

Estimated intakes for the metals and other elements measured during this survey do not cause concern for people’s health.
