The 2018 report on the use of the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed published shows that a total of 3699 notifications of food or feed risks were reported by the Member States to the European Commission last year. Of these, 1118 were classified as ‘alert', indicating a serious health risk for which swift action was required by food operators or authorities.

Aflatoxins in nuts and mercury in swordfish were the two most frequently reported issues in food checked at the EU border and on the EU market.

As in previous years, only a small percentage of the notifications in 2018 related to feed (9%) and food contact materials (4%).

Also in 2018, a significant number of notifications related to a multi-country foodborne outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes linked to frozen corn.
