"Special issue" of the public health journal Bundesgesundheitsblatt is published. This special issue was created and produced with the support of the National Breastfeeding Committee at the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR).
On past Friday, the seventh BfR-Summer Academy under the slogan "from experts to experts" came to an end. From 25 June to 6 July 2018, 40 experts from Asia, Europe and Latin America came together to discuss the topics of risk assessment and risk communication in the field of food safety.
Because contaminated foods occasionally cause tularemia outbreaks, the BfR has assessed the health risks of F. tularensis in foods of plant and animal origin, taking into account the tenacity of the pathogen during the processing of raw food materials.
