Food contaminants are substances that have not been intentionally added to food. These substances may be present in food as a result of the various stages of its production, packaging, transport or holding. They also might result from environmental contamination. Since contamination generally has a negative impact on the quality of food and may imply a risk to human health, measures have been taken to minimize contaminant levels in foodstuffs.
To ensure high levels of public health, in this law, Colombia and the European Union set maximum levels for certain contaminants in food.
