EU: Testing methods for PSP detection in mollusks amended Featured


The European Commission has amended the authorized testing methods to be used for the detection of paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) in mollusks. In future, the whole body (or any separately edible part) should be analyzed using the biological testing method or any other internationally recognized method. If the results are challenged, the reference method shall be the so-called Lawrence method as published in AOAC Official Method 2005.06 (Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning Toxins in Shellfish).
