- Mycotoxins T-2 & HT-2
Concerning these substances 9, ANSES recommends establishment or strengthening of management measures to limit exposure levels (management policy environmental releases, process control, mounting regulatory or reduction of existing thresholds thresholds ).
For 7 other substances, the risk can not be ruled out:
