The EU's Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed ("RASFF") has released its 2008 Annual Report on Border Refusals during 2008. For comparison purposes we also attach the September 2008 USDA-ERS EIB Report No. 39 FOOD SAFETY AND IMPORTS. It is instructive to compare USFDA and DG-SANCO Import Refusals. For both the USA and the EU, Seafood Products and Produce (Fruits and Vegetables) are the top two categories of Border Refusals.
