Canadian drinks tested for pesticides

Over 99% of coffee and juice samples tested by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in 2010/11 complied with pesticide maximum residue limits (MRLs), but compliance amounted to just 75% in the tea samples tested. The CFIA analysed a total of 1,074 samples, including 297 of coffee, 510 of juice and 267 of tea for over 430 different pesticide residues. The targeted survey under the CFIA’s Food Safety Action Plan (FSAP) was intended to generate baseline surveillance data for these three beverages and to make comparisons with previous testing programmes.
