Three squirrels responded to “potential carcinogens exceeding the standard” of potato chips: in line with national standards

Three squirrels said in a statement on the official microblog that some of the company’s products contained a potential carcinogen, acrylamide, saying that the company was sorry for the trouble or even panic it had brought to the community. The company’s original crisp potato products met the national food safety standards. According to the statement of three squirrels, the potato food professional committee of China Food Industry Association said in an official statement issued at the first time that the production and sales of baked potato chips by relevant enterprises are qualified products in line with national standards, and the acrylamide content detected at present is not enough to cause harm to human body within the scope of normal eating leisure products. < / P > < p > the three squirrels also said that the Shenzhen Consumer Council, which made the comparative test, had issued a statement after the release of the report, saying that the statements on the topic of “acrylamide exceeding the standard” reported by the media were inappropriate and easy to mislead consumers. < / P > < p > previously, the Shenzhen Municipal Consumer Council conducted a comparative test on 15 potato chips. Among them, the acrylamide content of many potato chips exceeded the European Union’s benchmark level, involving shanghaojia, yanjinpuzi and three squirrels. According to the published data, in 1994, the international agency for research on cancer (IARC) classified acrylamide as a class 2A carcinogen, which may be carcinogenic to human beings. < p > < p > the Shenzhen Consumer Council said at that time that there was no international or domestic regulation or standard for the limit of acrylamide in food. In 2017, the EU issued directive (EU) 2017 / 2158 to formulate mitigation measures and baseline levels. The reference level of acrylamide in potato chips in Annex IV is 750 μ g / kg. The baseline value is a performance indicator used to verify the effectiveness of mitigation measures, not the safety limit of acrylamide in food. Acrylamide should be taken as little as possible. In addition, the Shenzhen Municipal Consumer Council said on the 2nd that there was no regulation or standard for acrylamide limit in food at home and abroad, and acrylamide did not exceed the standard. In the secondary market, three squirrels closed 52.16 yuan / share, down 3.19% and 18.72% year-on-year, with a total market value of 21.1 billion yuan. < / P > < p > Disclaimer: the purpose of this article reprinted by china.com finance and economics is to convey more information and does not represent the views and positions of the website.
