US alert over carbendazim in orange juice

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has begun testing orange juice for the fungicide, carbendazim, following the detection of residues in the parts per billion range. The FDA was notified of the detection of the fungicide by a juice company on December 28th. Carbendazim is not registered for use on oranges in the US and there is no import tolerance for crops treated overseas. The presence of residues of carbendazim in orange juice is therefore illegal under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the FDA points out.
