General Food Safety: Food Injurious to Health


Sections 7 to 9 of the Food Safety Act 1990 comprise the core of the 1990 Act, which must be read in conjunction with Article 14 of general food law Regulation (EC) 178/2002. Food producers are prohibited from placing unsafe products on the market under the provisions of The General Product Safety Regulations 2005, which gave effect to EU Directive 2001/95/EC. Food and feed come within the remit of the 2005 Regulations; it has limited application in that it only applies where there is no provision with the same objective. General food law Regulation (EC) 178/2002 and additional specific food and feed legislation mean the 2005 Regulations are unlikely to have much relevance to food and feed but may provide a safety net if food and feed legislation is found wanting in any way.
