Verifiers have raised a number of questions regarding requirements where there are differences between Chinese and NZ legislation for the labelling of Infant Formula, Follow-on Formula and Formulated Supplementary Foods for Young Children.

This study was undertaken at the request of the New Zealand Food Safety Authority/Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry to update the raw milk cheese component of a previous study of human disease associated with raw milk and raw milk products, titled ‘A systematic review of the human disease evidence associated with the consumption of raw milk and raw milk cheeses’ (Jaros et al. 2008)
NZFSA (now MPI) commissioned this report to develop guidelines for conducting challenge trials relevant to manufacturing cheese from raw milk, with the intention of helping determine the safety of raw milk cheeses.
The objective of this work was to identify conditions and physico-chemical parameters during the raw milk cheese making process that may influence growth and enterotoxin production by enterotoxigenic strains of Staphylococcus aureus.
