EFSA: Uranium in foodstuffs, in particular mineral water 
Adopted: 25 March 2009
This opinion, published on 29th May 2009, replaces the earlier version published on 28th April 2009 .
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) was asked to conduct a risk assessment on uranium at the European level because of the existence of differing regulations and also due to existing gaps in the knowledge base concerning the chronic toxicity of uranium. This opinion focuses on uranium’s chemical toxicity, while the radiological risk will be addressed by the Group of Experts established under Article 31 of the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) Treaty under the Directorate-General for Energy and Transport .
