UK pesticide residues down

There were fewer cases of illegal pesticide residues in UK food samples in 2006 than in previous years, the Pesticide Residue Committee's (PRC) annual report indicates. The 3,562 samples tested showed no residues in 65.2% of samples, residues below maximum residue limits (MRLs) in 33.1% and residues above MRLs in 1.7%. In 2005, some 30.2% of samples contained residues below MRLs and 1.7% exceeded MRLs (Agrow No 508, p 11).
