Food safety and risk management regarding ethylene oxide residues

In the last 6 months, more than 500 food products have been recalled due to elevated ETO residues. Ethylene oxide and the metabolite 2-chloroethanol are both toxic, but ethylene oxide has furthermore been classified as carcinogenic and genotoxic. The use of ETO is prohibited in the EU and the maximum residue level is 0,02 -0,1 mg/kg, as stated in the Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.
