European Union: Commission denies authorisation of Pediococcus pentosaceus as feed additives

Since further use of Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30068) and Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30044) as feed additives may cause a risk to human and animal health, those feed additives should be withdrawn from the market as soon as possible.

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) Nº 754/2014 of 11 July 2014 denies the authorisation of Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30068) and Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30044) as feed additives

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) concluded in its opinions of 6 March 2014 that Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30068) and Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30044) are resistant to tetracycline, an antibiotic used in human and veterinary medicine.

The information available does not permit the risk to be excluded that Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30068) and Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30044) may spread to other micro-organisms resistance to that antibiotic. Consequently, it has not been established that Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30068) and Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30044) do not have an adverse effect on animal health, human health or the environment, when used as feed additives under the proposed conditions.

The conditions for authorisation, as provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, are therefore not satisfied. Accordingly, the authorisation of Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30068) and Pediococcus pentosaceus (NCIMB 30044) as feed additives should be denied.
