The 2014 European Union Report on Pesticide Residues in Food


Published on: Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:00:15 +0200

This report provides a detailed insight into the official control activities performed by EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. Overall, 97.1% of the 82,649 samples analysed in 2014 were free of residues or contained residues within the legally permitted levels. Based on the results provided by the reporting countries, detailed analysis were performed regarding pesticide occurrence on the most important food products consumed and the dietary risk related to the exposure of European consumers to pesticide residues. Moreover, the data were analysed with view to identify pesticides and food products that exceeded the legal limits. It also includes the findings on pesticide residues in imported foods, organic products, baby foods as well as results in animal products. Based on analysis of the 2014 pesticide monitoring results, EFSA derived a number of recommendations to further increase the efficiency of the European control systems to ensure a high level of consumer protection.
