UK pesticide residues in food rolling reporting programme

28 November 2016

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

For grapes none of the residues detected by the laboratory would be expected to have an effect on health. For potato and milk no residues were found at or above the reporting limits.

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

Beans with pods

  • One sample from Malaysia (chlrofenapyr and dithiocarbamates)
  • One sample from India (dithiocarbamates, hexaconazole and profenofos)
  • One sample from Malaysia (chlorfenapyr, dithiocarbamates and lufenuron).

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

Okra

  • Four samples from Jordan (abamectin)
  • One sample from Jordan (abamectin, acetamiprid and oxamyl)

The risk assessment screens 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 UK (chlorate).

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