Summary

Following the submission of additional data and a new risk assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the EU has reinstated the MRLs for nicotine in spices to 0.3 mg/kg (the level that applied before 15 September 2023 to seed/fruit spices). Earlier in 2023, the EU also amended MRLs on rose hips, herbs and edible flowers, wild fungi, teas, and herbal infusions.
