The certification of the mass fraction of aflatoxin M1 in whole milk powders, Certified Reference Material: ERM-BD282 (zero level), ERM-BD283 (low level), ERM-BD284 (high level)
The mycotoxin aflatoxin M1 (AfM1) is a serious food safety hazard for which the European Commission has already established a maximum permissible level of 0.05 mu g/kg AfM1 in milk and milk products. This report describes the preparation of three whole milk powder reference materials ERMBD282 (zero level), ERM-BD283 (low level) and ERM-BD284 (high level) and the certification of their individual aflatoxin M1 mass fractions. ERM-BD282, ERM-BD283, ERM-BD284 were originally certified as BCR-282R, BCR-283R, BCR-284R. The certified values were calculated as the unweighted arithmetic mean values of results delivered by a number of experienced labaoratories participating in a collaborative characterisation exercise. Uncertainties were calculated in compliance with the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) and include uncertainties due to possible inhomogeneity and instability.
