On March 18, the European Food Safety Authority and external experts from the World Health Organization have developed a report assessing the risk of Ebola transmission from the consumption of raw foods, such as plants, fruits and vegetables, legally imported into the EU from African countriesThe report concluded there is “No Evidence" that the Ebola virus can be transmitted through food.
EFSA states for the virus to be transmitted though food, several steps are necessary and none of these has ever been reported.

-          The exported food would need to be contaminated at the point of origin;

-          The food would need to contain a viable virus (“capable of surviving”) when it arrives into the EU;

-          The person would have to be infected following foodborne exposure.
