Objective:  The  purpose of  this  study  is  to  analyze  and  assess  the  risk  associated  with  the presence  of aflatoxins  in  food  and  feed. Aflatoxins are produced  by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus and they are distributed worldwide.Conclusions:Aflatoxins are a potential danger for both animal and human health. Attention should be paid  to  the  potentially  dangerous  synergistic  or  additive  effects  on  animal  health  arising  from  the  presence  of  more  than  onemycotoxin  in  feed.  Given  the  ubiquity  of mycotoxins in the world, is also necessary to develop an effective program of risk management, which will be crucial to reducecosts and economic losses in farms associated with the risk of pollution
