The Food Safety and Hygiene (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2016
This instrument amends the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013 (SI 2013 No. 2996) to provide for the execution and enforcement in England of the provisions of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2015/1375 (“the new Commission Regulation”), laying down the specific rules on official controls for Trichinella in meat. Trichinella is a genus of parasites that can cause serious disease and sometimes death in humans and is mainly caused by eating undercooked meat, particularly swine that contains the parasite. The new Commission Regulation introduces minor changes to the specific rules on official controls for Trichinella in meat and a codification that creates a single consolidated Regulation, incorporating all previous amendments, including the changes that were previously introduced to provide clarity to the legislation and avoid misinterpretation.
