Chlormequat in oyster mushrooms

8 May 2019

Mushroom growers have submitted to the European Commission recent monitoring data on oyster mushrooms showing that residues occur in those products at higher levels than the current temporary MRL set for cultivated fungi. Those residues result from a cross-contamination of cultivated fungi with straw lawfully treated with chlormequat. Several EU Member States submitted additional monitoring data from official controls performed specifically on oyster mushrooms, which confirmed those findings.
