Agchem residues assessed in Europe

Some 96% of food samples tested for pesticides in 29 European countries in 2007 complied with legal maximum residue limits (MRLs), according to the first annual report on residues produced by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). MRLs were exceeded in 4% of samples, compared with 5% in 2006. The figures include general surveillance sampling and targeted enforcement sampling, which follows up cases of previous violations.
