Milk containing toxic aflatoxin M1 was imported into Macedonia, claims opposition


On September 21 2023, Macedonia imported over 20 tons of permanent milk from the Republic of Serbia, with a validity period until February 3, 2024, and it was put on the market even though aflatoxin M1 was detected in the milk above the maximum allowed level. And with that, it is harmful to drink and can cause poisoning and other complications for the health of citizens, pointed out Cvetan Tripunovski, head of the VMRO-DPMNE committee for agriculture, forestry and water management.
The findings show that although the milk contains carcinogenic substances, it has passed all the controls and as such it is allowed to enter the Republic of Macedonia with harmful substances.
Aflatoxins found in milk are known worldwide as the most important mycotoxins in food and animal feed because of their hepatotoxicity and carcinogenicity.
