Alibaba scandal: organic sesame with ethylene oxide

by Christophe » 23/11/20, 23:14

Massive recall of more than 1000 products containing sesame contaminated with ethylene oxide ... including organic products? : Shock: : Shock: : Shock: : Shock:

Sesame seeds exposed to ethylene oxide, over 1000 products recalled
Ethylene oxide is banned in the Union but has been found in food in doses a thousand times higher than the maximum tolerated limit in Europe.

(..)

Monday evening, the list of products in question was already very long, ranging from Nordic bread brand “La gerbe savoyarde”, distributed by Intermarché, to multi-seed tofu from La Vie Claire, including organic sesame seeds from Carrefour. The alert was carried out through the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed, a European alert system reporting problems relating to agrifood products.

La liste https://www.economie.gouv.fr/dgccrf/avi ... -du-sesame

I don't quite understand this panic ... sesame is often a spice in very small quantities ... on the other hand it is scandalous that organic is affected in the same way!

It has been some time since a long list of product recalls was posted in the organic section of the local supermarket.

How does this relate to Alibaba?

besides being a filthy ignorance on many other areas, even Did would not have made this kind of reflection.
Bio means no use, by the farmer, synthetic pesticides of chemical origin, only. He has no pretension to control his polluted environment! Beekeepers are in the same situation because they cannot force bees to forage only on unpolluted flowers.

I read well? At one time you would have a rule on your fingers to say such bullshit !!

Here is the whole organic scam, the wolf comes out of the woods: no chemical treatment during the agricultural phase but possible treatments afterwards and as dirty as for all the other products ... I had known this for a few years, here is a nice confirmation! : Evil: : Evil: : Evil:

ps: the relation with alibaba? Reread the fable ...this case opens the pandora's cave of organic products : Mrgreen:

first or second degree? for example you would situate Did and its more than bio, at what stage ... in the first degree?
ps: the relation with alibaba? Read the fable again ... this case opens the pandora's cave of organic products
good comparison! Because what was left at the bottom of the box: hope! Quite a symbol!

Didier does not use any chemicals either during or after ... Nothing to do with "organic" so ... I do not see why you are talking about it here ...

Do you know any gardener who treat their production after harvest? : Shock: : Shock:

Look, this is not the first health scandal linked to sesame: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxyde_d%2 ... _sanitaire

Note that this is not a "small" contamination ...

In September 2020, in Europe, concentrations up to 186 mg / kg, i.e. 3 times higher than the maximum residue limit of 500 mg / kg are detected after placing on the market in batches of 268 453 kg of sesame seeds imported from India.


How can such a concentration pass on such a high tonnage 270 Tonnes !!? Agro-food terrorism ???

There we are not on a handling error of an isolated employee !!

As I said, sesame is almost a flavoring we use very little in the finished product ... but at 3500 times the dose we understand the global ban !! It's huge !!

How much does France consume sesame per year? I will not be surprised that it is in this order of magnitude!

If Didier is isolated in the middle of nowhere, the probability of his products being contaminated is reduced (the air cannot be controlled for him, remember the Chernobyl cloud), but he would be surrounded by industrial crops dealing with everything, anywhere anytime. , by plane or helicopter and its products would become less than organic. Not because of its cultural mode, but because it does not control, precisely, what surrounds it.
Do you know any gardener who treat their production after harvest?
They're called preservatives, and gardeners have often treated their produce far more than the farmers themselves. Genus Glyphosate supposedly not dangerous for the health of himself and his relatives! Then there are those of industrialists, etc… and there, for the subject, we are already in the industrial sector.
