In Germany, the first case of African swine fever (ASF) was detected in a wild boar in Brandenburg on 10 September 2020. ASF is a disease of domestic pigs and wild boar caused by a virus. The BfR has compiled some selected questions and answers on the subject.
The Lower Saxony Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection has written a report on PFAS concentrations in sheep and beef liver based on samples from the 2019 National Residue Control Plan. The BfR has compared these data with PFAS concentrations in sheep and beef liver samples sourced from the food control programmes of various German federal states, which were taken in the period 2007 to 2020.
