EDA statement following the
EFSA opinion on consumption of raw drinking milk of January 2015
EDA acknowledges the EFSA opinion and underlines the importance to distinguish between raw drinking milk as evaluated by EFSA and dairy products made with raw milk
As a representative of milk purchasers/processors across the EU, EDA welcomes the EFSA opinion on raw drinking milk. EDA recognises that pasteurisation and other processing treatments producing equivalent effects are important control measures for the microbiological safety of drinking milk.
