This exchange of information helps Member States to act more rapidly and in a coordinated manner in response to a health threat caused by food or feed. Alert example: INFORMATION NOTIFICATION: 2005.AXC ORIGINAL NOTIFICATION SUBJECT: CADMIUM IN MINERAL PREMIXTURE FOR FISH FROM NORWAY RASFF

11 Health and Consumers Health and Consumers In 2011, 9157 notifications in RASFF related to non-compliances with EU food legislation were reported, of which 617 concerned serious risks. Most of the notifications were follow-ups (5345) rather than new (3812) notifications. This reflects an increased effectiveness of the system with a better targeting and a more extensive follow-up. Out of the 3812 new notifications: 3139 concerned food, 361 concerned feed and 312 concerned food contact materials. http://ec.europa.eu/food/food/rapidalert/index_en.htm RASFF
