Survey of metal and other elements in offal
Project Code: C02059
The Food Standards Agency has conducted a survey of metals and other elements in offal and offal products. A total of 165 samples were analysed for aluminium, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, selenium, thallium and zinc.
The aim of this survey was to provide up-to-date information on the concentrations of metals and other elements in offal and offal products, and to allow more accurate and detailed dietary intake estimates of metals and other elements by consumers of offal and offal products. The samples were also analysed for dioxins and PCB and these results are reported separately in Food Survey Information Sheet 15/06.
