UK pesticide residues rolling programme

15 December 2016

The Pesticide Residues in Food Expert Committee has published the results of its rolling reporting programme for samples taken in October 2016 of beans with pods, grapes, milk, okra, potato and prepared fresh fruit.

For grapes, potato and milk samples none of the residues detected by the laboratory would be expected to have an effect on health.

The following results were found to have residues above the MRL:

Beans with pods

  • One sample from Malaysia (diafenthiuron);
  • One sample from Malaysia (chlorfenapyr and dithiocarbamates);
  • One sample from India (dimethoate);
  • One sample from Malaysia (flutriafol).

The risk assessment screen for all the above samples identified that none of the residues detected by the laboratory would be expected to have an effect on health.

  • One sample from India (carbendazim, dithiocarbamates, fenavalerate and esfenvalerate, triazophos).

The risk assessment screen for triazophos showed intakes above the Acute Reference Dose for some consumers. A RASFF notification has been submitted to the FSA about this finding.

 Okra

  • One sample from India (flonicamid)
  • One sample from India (flonicamid)
  • One sample from Honduras (oxamyl)
  • One sample from Jordan (dimethoate and imidacloprid)
  • One sample from Honduras (oxamyl)

The risk assessment screen for all the above samples identified that none of the residues detected by the laboratory would be expected to have an effect on health.

 

Prepared fresh fruit

  • One sample from Ghana (chlorate).

The risk assessment screen identified that none of the residues detected by the laboratory would be expected to have an effect on health.

 For more details of the findings see the full report.
