The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) yesterday [Wednesday] released details of a study on the potential dioxin contamination of fish and fish oil capsules. The study was carried out in advance of new EU safety limits for dioxins in foodstuffs due to come into effect on 1 July 2002. It was carried out to examine the contamination of certain foods and notify manufacturers prior to the July deadline so that appropriate action could be taken where necessary.
