06 April, 2011. safefood would like to reassure consumers that milk is safe to drink.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) confirmed today the detection of a minute trace of Iodine-131 in three milk samples in Ireland taken over last weekend on behalf of the Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland (RPII). The FSAI have also confirmed the levels identified in the samples are miniscule and pose no concern for consumer health.

safefood would like to reassure consumers that milk is safe to drink, as the levels found are 2,500 times lower than those recommended under EU law.
