Description:
Appropriately managed land-spreading provides a sustainable option for the utilisation of organic agricultural (OA) materials and some treated organic municipal and industrial (OMI) materials. Such use is conditional, however, on the implementation of effective controls as detailed in this report and the consistent application of good practice at every level. Otherwise, in the absence of these measures, the land-spreading of OA and OMI materials on agricultural land used for food production may pose risks, associated with microbiological and chemical hazards, to food safety. This report provides a scientific opinion on the food safety implications most likely to be associated with land-spreading OA and OMI materials on agricultural land used for food production in Ireland against the background of current practices. The report reviews the current scientific knowledge in relation to the treatment, management and best practice options available to prevent and control known hazards to food safety related to land-spreading of these materials. The report also acknowledges opinions from other bodies on the level of compliance with these best practices and highlights the implications this may have for food safety.
