Coating with unauthorised additives/coating substances.

(complaints by Spain):

- unauthorised additives on mangoes from Brazil E 905

- unauthorised additives on pineapples from Costa Rica

- unauthorised coating substances E 905 (microcrystalline wax) and E 218 (methyl p-hydroxybenzoate) on pineapples from Costa Rica

(important note: E 905 has been authorised as a coating agent on pineapples in the EU since 2012)

 

Melons: Since March, cases of salmonella infections have occurred in various countries, possibly due to Gaia, cantaloupe and/or honeydew melons from Honduras, Brazil and Costa Rica. Salmonella can adhere to the surface of the melon and be transferred to the edible part of the fruit through poor hygiene.
