Inquiry report on PCR use in aquafeed published

This report is a follow up on the use of the ruminant PCR test that enabled from 1st June 2013 on the reintroduction of non-ruminant processed animal proteins in feed for aquaculture. Due to a certain frequency of rapid alerts with respect to detection of ruminant DNA in aquafeed or feed material intended for aquafeed and the resulting complaints of the industrial sectors related to the activities of production of the by-products or production of aquafeed, it was checked if really the method gives rise to an abnormal rate of false positive results.
