Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Twenty-third Session of the CODEX Alimentarius Commission adopted the sampling plan for "Total Aflatoxins in Peanuts Intended for Further Processing" on an interim basis. The sampling plan calls for a single 20-kg laboratory sample to be taken from a peanut lot and tested against a maximum level of 15 parts per billion total aflatoxin. This sampling plan has been designed for enforcement and controls concerning total aflatoxins in bulk consignments of peanuts traded in the export market. To assist member countries in implementing the CODEX sampling plan, sample selection methods, sample preparation methods, and analytical methods required to quantify aflatoxin in bulk peanut lots are described in this document.
