PESTICIDE RESIDUES MONITORING REPORT


    FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS 2002


      OCTOBER - DECEMBER 2002
INTRODUCTION

Background

The Government’s pesticide residues surveillance programme is overseen by
the Pesticide Residues Committee (PRC). The Chairman is Dr Ian Brown,
consultant occupational physician and toxicologist at Southampton University
Hospitals.   The members have academic, food industry or consumer
backgrounds. Information on the membership of the PRC is also available on
the PRC’s website:
www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/prcmembersweb.html

The PRC’s role is to advise Ministers and the Chief Executives of the
Pesticides Safety Directorate (PSD) and the Food Standards Agency (FSA)
on:

•   the planning of surveillance programmes for pesticide residues in the UK
    food supply and the evaluation of the results;

•   procedures for sampling, sample processing, new methods of analysis, the
    assessment of variability of pesticide residues in food and related issues.


Reporting of results

This report gives results for surveys carried out in the fourth quarter of 2002.
Samples were generally taken between October to December. Previous
survey results can also be viewed on the PRC’s website.

This report includes information on brand names (see Annex 1). Information
on the brand name policy can be found towards the back of this report.

Organic samples are not specifically targeted in the surveys. They are tested
as part of the monitoring programme as they are available for consumers to
buy.

It should be noted that this quarterly report is not intended to give a
comprehensive comparison and detailed analysis of the results for these
surveys compared with the previous surveys when the commodities were last
surveyed. This type of detailed analysis will be reported on separately in the
form of ‘special reports’ when sufficient data become available on each
commodity to give an accurate picture on trends of residues in those
commodities.

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SURVEYS (EXCLUDING TROPICAL FRUIT AND
VEGETABLES)

Apples (second part) (Table 1)

Introduction
Imported and UK sourced apples are available all the year round. Apples are
monitored yearly due to their importance in the diet, particularly for children.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 146 samples were tested for up to 101 pesticide residues, in a
  range of analytical suites (see the footnote to Table 1).
• 49 of the samples were UK origin, 96 imported and 1 was of unknown
  origin.
• 91 out of 146 samples tested did not contain any residues from those
  sought.
• Residues were detected in 55 of the samples tested.
• 1 UK and 6 imported samples contained 3 residues.
• 8 UK and 7 imported samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this part of
  the survey.
• Chlorpyrifos (MRL 0.5 mg/kg) was found in 22 samples ranging from 0.01
  to 0.2 mg/kg. Chlorpyrifos is an insecticide used to control a variety of
  pests on a range of crops, including top fruit.
• Captan (MRL 3 mg/kg) was found in 8 samples ranging from 0.06 to 0.8
  mg/kg. Captan is a fungicide used to control various apple diseases.
• Diphenylamine (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 8 samples ranging from 0.06
  to 2.6 mg/kg. Diphenylamine is an antioxidant for use in fruit storage
  practice.
• Propargite (CAC MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 8 imported samples ranging
  from 0.08 to 0.8 mg/kg. Propargite is an acaricide used to control a variety
  of mites on a range of crops, including top fruit.
• One UK sample was found to contain bupirimate (no MRL) at 0.1 mg/kg.
  One UK sample was found to contain pyrimethanil (no MRL) at 0.06
  mg/kg. One imported sample was found to contain fenazaquin (no MRL)
  at 0.07 mg/kg. Risk assessments (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• 2 samples were labelled as organic and did not contain any residues.

Previous survey results
• Apples were last sampled in 2001:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4reportrev1.pdf).
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q3 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses observed in this
part of the survey.

Introduction

Apricots are sampled as part of the rolling programme.      They were last
sampled in 1996. This is the second part of the survey.

Results July to December 2002
• A total of 30 samples were tested for 117 pesticide residues.
• All the samples were imported, therefore there were no non-approved UK
  uses.
• 13 out of 30 samples tested did not contain any residues from those
  sought.
• Residues were detected in 17 of the samples tested.
• 1 sample contained 4 residues.
• 2 samples contained 3 residues.
• 4 samples contained 2 residues.
• Captan (MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 9 samples ranging from 0.09 to 0.8
  mg/kg. Captan is a fungicide used to control various diseases on stone
  fruit.
• Iprodione (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 9 samples ranging from 0.05 to 0.9
  mg/kg. Iprodione is a fungicide used to control various diseases on stone
  fruit.
• There was one MRL exceedance in this part of the survey: thiabendazole
  in a sample from France at 0.06 mg/kg (EC LOD MRL 0.05 mg/kg). A risk
  assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no
  concern for consumer health. We have notified the retailer and have
  written to the authorities in France to inform them of this finding.
• Five samples were found to contain tebuconazole (no MRL) at levels
  between 0.05 and 0.07 mg/kg. A risk assessment on the highest level
  found (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no concern
  for consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Apricots were last sampled in 1996:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr96.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q2 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf
Conclusions
There was 1 MRL exceedance in this survey.

Aubergine (second part) (Table 3)

Introduction
Aubergines are sampled as part of the rolling programme of commodities, i.e.
once every few years. They were last sampled in 1998, therefore have been
included in this year’s programme. This is the second part of the survey.




                                     7
Results July to November 2002
• A total of 26 samples were tested for 98 pesticide residues.
• Nine samples were of UK origin, 13 were imported and 4 were of unknown
  origin.
• 24 samples tested did not contain any residues from those sought.
• None of the UK samples contained any residues.
• Residues were detected in 2 samples tested.
• There were no multiple residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses.
• One sample imported from Spain was found to contain chlorothalonil at 0.5
  mg/kg (MRL 2 mg/kg). The aubergine samples were not cryogenically
  milled. It is recognised that degradation of chlorothalonil occurs in some
  samples which have not been cryogenically milled, therefore this value
  could be an under-estimation.
• One sample of unknown origin was found to contain propamocarb (no
  MRL) at 0.1 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q2 2002 report:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf

Conclusions
There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this first part of
the survey.

Bananas (second part) (Table 4)

Introduction
Bananas are sampled as part of the rolling programme. They are one of the
most popular fruits, particularly amongst children. They were last sampled in
1996. Since the MRLs for bananas apply to the whole fruit including the skin,
samples are not peeled before analysis. This is the second part of the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 56 samples were tested for up to 42 pesticide residues, in a
  range of analytical suites (see the footnote to Table 4).
• 48 samples were imported and 8 were of unknown origin.
• 23 out of 56 samples tested did not contain any residues from those
  sought.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• Residues were detected in 33 samples tested.
• 12 samples contained 2 residues.
• Imazalil (MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 20 imported samples and 2 samples
  of unknown origin, ranging from 0.02 to 1.3 mg/kg. Imazalil is used as a
  fungicide to prevent post-harvest decay of bananas.




                                      8
•   Thiabendazole (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 17 imported samples ranging
    from 0.05 to 0.5 mg/kg. Thiabendazole is a fungicide used to control a
    variety of diseases on a range of crops, including bananas.
•   None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Bananas were last sampled in 1996.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr96.pdf)

Conclusions
This survey is more extensive than that conducted previously. No residues
were found to exceed their MRLs.

Carrots (second part) (Table 5)

Introduction
Carrots have featured in the surveillance programme extensively since 1990.
Restrictions on the number of organophosphorus (OP) applications was
introduced in 1995 on the advice of the Advisory Committee on Pesticides
following research into variation in OP pesticide residues between individual
carrot roots. The residue levels of the main organophosphorus pesticides
have declined since 1989, and specifically more recently. This is the second
part of the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 62 samples were tested for up to 90 pesticide residues in a range
  of analytical suites (see the footnote to Table 5).
• 49 of the samples were UK origin, 8 imported and 5 of unknown origin.
• 59 out of 62 samples tested did not contain any residues from those
  sought.
• Resides were detected in 3 samples tested.
• There were no multiple residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this part of
  the survey.
• One UK sample was found to contain trifluralin, a herbicide, (no MRL) at
  0.03 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed
  that there was no concern for consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Carrots were last sampled in 2000.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2000/q4rep-00.pdf)
• A special survey on carrots was carried out at the beginning of 2002.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/firstq2002/Q1report.pdf)
• The first part of the 2002 survey was reported in the Q3 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)




                                      9
Conclusion
None of the samples contained residues that exceeded MRLs, and none of
the UK samples contained residues resulting from non-approved use. This is
the second part of the survey.

Celery (second part) (Table 6)

Introduction
Celery has been sampled regularly as part of the rolling programme, mainly
due to concerns over MRL exceedances in imported sources, in particular of
Spanish origin (the main source of imported celery), and non-approved UK
uses. Celery was last sampled in 2001 – there were exceedances of MRLs
for cypermethrin and diazinon in Spanish samples. This is the second part of
the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 37 samples of celery were tested for 95 pesticide residues.
• 16 samples were of UK origin, 5 were imported and 16 were of unknown
  origin.
• 19 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 18 of the samples tested.
• 2 samples contained 3 residues.
• 4 samples contained 2 residues.
• There was 1 MRL exceedance in this part of the survey.
• There were no non-approved UK uses.
• One sample from Spain was found to contain chlorpyrifos at 0.08 mg/kg,
  exceeding the LOD MRL (0.05 mg/kg). This sample also contained
  inorganic bromide at 8.4 mg/kg (MRL 300 mg/kg) and malathion at 0.06
  mg/kg (MRL 3 mg/kg). We have notified the retailer and have written to
  the authorities in Spain to inform them of this finding.
• Chlorpyrifos is an insecticide used to control a variety of pests on a range
  of crops, including celery. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake
  implications’) showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• The most common residue found was of chlorothalonil (MRL 10 mg/kg).
  This was found in 14 samples tested at levels ranging from 0.05 to 2.5
  mg/kg. Chlorothalonil is used as a fungicide.
• One sample from the Netherlands labelled as organic was found to contain
  inorganic bromide at 19 mg/kg. The level found was not considered to
  have arisen through methyl bromide usage, but was more likely to be
  naturally occurring residue in celery, therefore this result will not be
  reported to the UK Register of Organic Food Standards (UKROFS).

Previous survey results
• Celery was last sampled in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4rep-01rev1.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q3 2002 report:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)




                                     10
Conclusion
None of the UK samples contained residues resulting from non-approved use.
However, the results from this first part of the survey found one sample from
Spain that contained a residue of chlorpyrifos which exceeded the MRL. A
risk assessment has shown that there is no risk to consumers.

Cucumber (second part) (Table 7)

Introduction
Cucumbers are sampled as part of the rolling programme. They were last
sampled in 2000. This is the second part of the survey. Although cucumbers
are available all year round they are subject to seasonal production. There is
generally a clear split in the market with produce from southern European
countries such as Spain and the Canary Islands dominating the shelves in the
autumn and winter months in the UK and produce from northern European
countries such as the UK and the Netherlands widely available in spring and
summer.

Results July to December 2002
• A total of 38 samples were tested for 97 pesticide residues.
• 19 of the samples were UK origin, 16 imported (from Spain and the
  Netherlands) and 3 of unknown origin.
• 24 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 14 of the samples tested.
• 3 samples contained 3 residues.
• 3 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances or UK non-approved pesticides found in
  this survey.
• Propamocarb (CAC MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 6 samples ranging from
  0.1 to 0.3 mg/kg. Propamocarb is a fungicide used to control various
  diseases in a range of crops, including cucumber.
• Carbendazim (MRL 1 mg/kg) was found in 5 samples ranging from 0.07 to
  0.3 mg/kg. Carbendazim is a fungicide used to control a wide range of
  diseases on a variety of crops, including cucumber.
• Two samples imported from Spain were found to contain oxadixyl (no
  MRL) at 0.05 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Cucumbers were last sampled in 2000.
(http://www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2000/q4rep-00.pdf).
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q3 2002 report:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this part of the
survey. This is the same as the first part of the survey.




                                     11
Grapes (second part) (Table 8)

Introduction
Grapes are sampled regularly because they are widely consumed, and results
from previous surveys have shown that they can contain a relatively wide
range of residues. This is due to the fact that pesticides are used frequently
because they are susceptible to insect and fungal attacks that can damage
crop appearance and therefore its value. The previous survey on grapes
appeared to show an improvement to the occurrence of residues and
exceedances, although the results were not directly comparable. This is the
second part of the survey.

Results July to October 2002
• A total of 36 samples were tested for 103 pesticide residues.
• There were 30 imported samples, and 6 of unknown origin.
• 14 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 22 of the samples tested.
• 2 samples contained 5 residues.
• 1 sample contained 3 residues.
• 4 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• There were no UK samples, therefore there were no non-approved UK
  uses.
• The most common residue found was of procymidone (MRL 5 mg/kg),
  which was found in 11 samples ranging from 0.02 to 0.7 mg/kg.
  Procymidone is a fungicide used to control various diseases on a range of
  crops, including grapes.
• One imported sample was found to contain pyrimethanil (no MRL) at 3.5
  mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that
  there was no concern for consumer health.
• 1 sample was labelled as organic and did not contain any residues.

Previous survey results
• 2 surveys were conducted in 2001: a 3-part EU survey and a special
   survey. The methodology employed in the EU survey more closely
   resembles that adopted for the 2002 study so it is those results which are
   reported here.
    − A total of 72 samples were tested for up to 31 pesticide residues.
    − Residues were detected in 39 (54%) samples
    − Multiple residues were detected in 16 (22%) samples
    − Procymidone was found most frequently, in 16 (22%) samples,
      followed by iprodione in 13 (18%) samples and captan 12 (17%).
      Dithiocarbamates was found in 1 (1%) sample.
    − None of the relevant MRLs were exceeded.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4reportrev1.pdf)

• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q2 2002 report:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)



                                     12
Conclusion
In terms of the incidence of residue detection, the overall results between the
2001 and 2002 surveys are broadly comparable. However, there are some
differences in the pesticide residues detected; the countries of origin are
different. It should be noted that the 2002 survey tested for a greater range of
pesticides to lower levels, in general, than in the previous study. There were
no MRL exceedances in the two halves of the 2002 survey.

Green beans (second part) (Table 9)

Introduction
Green Beans are sampled as part of the rolling programme. French beans
were last surveyed in 1993 and runner beans in 1994. This is the second part
of the survey.

Results July to October 2002
• A total of 36 samples were tested for 100 pesticide residues.
• 9 samples were of UK origin, 22 were imported and 5 were of unknown
  origin.
• 33 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• None of the UK samples contained any residues. Residues were detected
  in 2 imported samples and 1 of the samples of unknown origin.
• There were no multiple residues.
• There was 1 MRL exceedance in this part of the survey: chlorpyrifos in a
  sample imported from Kenya at 0.07 mg/kg (MRL 0.05 mg/kg). We have
  notified the retailer and have written to the authorities in Kenya to inform
  them of this finding.
• The above exceedance involved an MRL set at the LOD, therefore it was a
  ‘technical exceedance’.
• A risk assessment for this MRL exceedance indicated that the level found
  would result in intakes below the ARfD and is not of concern to consumer
  health (see ‘dietary intake implications’).
• One sample imported from Kenya was found to contain bifenthrin (no
  MRL) at 0.06 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• One of the samples was labelled as organic and did not contain any
  residues.

Previous survey results

French beans (1993)
• A total of 34 samples were tested for 16 pesticide residues.
• 1 imported sample exceeded the MRL for dithiocarbamates.

Runner beans (1994)
• A total of 25 samples were tested for 12 pesticide residues.
• 1 imported sample was found to contain carbendazim.




                                      13
Conclusions
There was 1 residue found to exceed its statutory limit, involving chlorpyrifos.
However, this was a ‘technical exceedance’ which would not lead to intakes
which could give concern for consumer health. There was no repeat of
exceedances of the pesticides which exceeded their MRLs in the first part of
the survey.

Leeks (second part) (Table 10)

Introduction
Leeks are sampled as part of the rolling programme of commodities, i.e. once
every few years. They were last sampled in 1996, therefore have been
included in this year’s programme. This is the second part of the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 24 samples were tested for 92 pesticide residues.
• Samples were mainly of UK origin (16) with 7 imported samples and 1 of
  unknown origin.
• None of the samples contained any residues from those sought.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Leeks were last sampled in 1996.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr96.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q2 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
This report gives the results for the second part of this survey on leeks.
These results show that none of the samples tested were found to contain any
residues from those sought, as for the first part of the survey.

Lettuce (second part) (Table 11)

Introduction
Previous surveillance over a number of years has indicated some misuse of
pesticides, particularly fungicides, on UK winter lettuce. The PRC has
responded by commissioning annual surveys of samples collected from retail
outlets. This is the second part of the survey.

Results April to November 2002
• A total of 72 samples were tested for up to 27 residues, in a range of
  analytical suites (see footnote to Table 11).
• 35 samples were of UK origin, 34 were imported and 3 were of unknown
  origin.
• 51 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 21 of the samples tested.
• 1 sample contained 3 residues.
• 8 samples contained 2 residues.



                                      14
•   There were 2 MRL exceedances of inorganic bromide in UK samples in
    this part of the survey: one at 137 mg/kg and one at 141 mg/kg (CAC MRL
    100 mg/kg). A risk assessment on the highest level found (see ‘Dietary
    intake implications’) showed that the NESTI for toddlers was 130% of the
    ARfD of 0.9 mg/kg bw/day. This intake is 7.7 times lower than a dose
    which was given to volunteers for 2 or 3 months without any adverse
    effect. Although the safety margins built into the ARfD would be eroded,
    adverse health effects would be unlikely to result from this exceedance.
    We have notified the retailers of these findings.
•   Two samples imported from Spain were found to contain imidacloprid (no
    MRL) at 0.2 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
    showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
•   The most common residue found was of dithiocarbamates (MRL 5 mg/kg).
    This was found in 8 samples tested at levels ranging from 0.05 to
    0.3 mg/kg. Dithiocarbamate compounds are fungicides, used to treat
    various diseases in a range of crops, including lettuce.
•   Quintozene was found in one UK sample at 0.9 mg/kg. This sample was
    purchased in May, therefore the ‘old’ EC MRL, of 3 mg/kg, applied. The
    use of quintozene was withdrawn in June 2002 and a revised EC MRL, of
    0.02 mg/kg (i.e. at the LOD), was implemented in December 2002.
•   All the samples in this survey were purchased before the new MRL for
    quintozene was implemented. The reporting level was 0.05 mg/kg. For
    future surveys, this will be reduced to the LOD, 0.02 mg/kg.
•   None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Lettuce was last sampled in 2001
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4reportrev1.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in the Q1 2002 report:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/firstq2002/Q1rep-02.pdf)

Conclusions
This report gives the results for the second part of this survey. The 2001
survey found 2 MRL exceedances and 4 non-approved uses in the samples
tested. The first part of the 2002 survey found 1 MRL exceedance and 1 non-
approved UK use. The 2002 results suggest a similar pattern of pesticide
usage.

Melon (second part) (Table 12)

Introduction
This survey on melons covered galia, honeydew and canteloupe varieties.
The whole fruit, including the skin, was analysed, as the MRLs are based on
residues in the whole fruit. This is the second part of the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 39 samples of melons were tested for 117 pesticide residues.
• 37 of the samples were imported and 2 were of unknown origin.
• 25 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.



                                     15
•   Residues were detected in 14 of the samples tested.
•   1 sample contained 3 residues.
•   One sample of galia melon from Brazil contained two MRL exceedances:
    acephate at 0.2 mg/kg (LOD MRL 0.02 mg/kg) and methamidophos at
    0.04 mg/kg (LOD MRL 0.01 mg/kg). A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary
    intake implications’) showed that there was no concern for consumer
    health. We have notified the retailer and have written to the authorities in
    Brazil to inform them of this finding. This sample also contained imazalil at
    0.04 mg/kg (MRL 2 mg/kg).
•   There were no UK samples, therefore there were no non-approved UK
    uses.
•   One sample of canteloupe melon from Spain was found to contain
    heptenophos (no MRL) at 0.02 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary
    intake implications’) showed that the NESTI for toddlers was 210% of the
    ARfD of 0.001 mg/kg bw/day. This intake is 476 times lower than a dose
    that caused no effect in rats and dogs after repeated dosing. When taking
    into account the fact that only the flesh of melons are consumed and the
    majority of the residue is likely to be on the surface (in the peel), as
    heptenophos (insecticide) is generally used close to harvest, it is unlikely
    that the ARfD will be exceeded by toddlers.
•   None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Melon were last sampled in 1999.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/wppr99/report-99.htm)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
In the first part of this survey, MRL exceedances were found in 3 samples of
melons. Two of these samples were from Brazil, and contained MRL
exceedances for both acephate and methamidophos. One sample from
Venezuela contained an MRL exceedance for diazinon. Risk assessments
showed that there was no concern for consumer health. In the second part of
the survey, MRL exceedances were found in 1 sample of melon from Brazil,
for both acephate and methamidophos. A risk assessment showed that there
was no concern for consumer health.

Oranges (Table 13) (second part)

Introduction
Oranges have been sampled frequently in the past due to the fact that they
have a high occurrence of multiple residues. Despite the complex residue
profile in oranges in the past, the risk to consumers has been considered to
be low, as the residue results related to the whole orange (including peel) and
the MRL is set on this basis to safeguard the consumer. Consumption of
orange peel is much lower in relation to the consumption of the flesh of the
orange. Since the MRLs for oranges apply to the whole fruit including the
skin, samples are not peeled before analysis. This is the second part of the
survey.


                                       16
Results July to October 2002
• A total of 72 samples of oranges were tested for up to 107 pesticide
  residues, in a range of analytical suites.
• 68 of the samples were imported and 4 were of unknown origin.
• 5 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 67 of the samples tested.
• 1 sample contained 5 residues.
• 7 samples contained 4 residues.
• 14 samples contained 3 residues.
• 15 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• There were no UK samples, therefore there were no non-approved UK
  uses.
• Imazalil (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 50 samples ranging from 0.07 – 4.5
  mg/kg. Imazalil is a fungicide used to prevent post harvest decay in citrus
  fruit.
• 2,4-D (Codex MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 26 samples ranging from 0.03 –
  1 mg/kg. 2,4-D is a post-emergence herbicide which is specifically used
  on citrus fruit as an anti-greening agent and to prevent pre-harvest drop of
  mature fruit.
• Thiabendazole (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 24 samples ranging from 0.06
  – 3.1 mg/kg. Thiabendazole is a fungicide used to control a variety of
  diseases on a range of crops, including citrus fruit.
• One sample imported from South Africa was found to contain tetradifon
  (no MRL) at 0.06 mg/kg. Another sample imported from South Africa was
  found to contain trifloxystrobin at 0.06 mg/kg (no MRL). Risk assessments
  (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no concern for
  consumer health. This is the first time that trifloxystrobin has been sought
  in oranges. It was added to the multi-residue suite in 2002.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• In 1999 a total 72 samples were tested for 35 pesticide residues.
    − Residues were detected in 68 (94%) of samples, with multiple residues
      detected in 67 (93%) of samples.
    − There were no exceedances of the relevant MRLs.
    − Imazalil was found in 65 (90%) of samples and thiabendazole in 62
      (86%) of samples.
    − 2,4-D was found in 41 (57%) of samples and 2-phenylphenol in 17
      (24%) of samples.

   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)

Conclusions
The 2002 survey tested for a greater range of pesticides to lower levels in
general than in the previous study. Despite the adoption of this more rigorous



                                     17
analytical regime the incidence of residues is generally lower than that
recorded previously.

Peaches and nectarines (second part) (Table 14)

Introduction
Peaches and nectarines are surveyed as part of the EU monitoring
programme. This is the second part of the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 25 samples of peaches and 27 samples of nectarines were
  tested.

Peaches

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 25 samples of peaches were tested for up to 99 pesticide
  residues, in a range of analytical suites.
• 23 of the samples were imported and 2 were of unknown origin.
• 11 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 14 of the samples tested.
• 1 sample contained 6 residues.
• 5 samples contained 3 residues.
• 3 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were five samples with MRL exceedances.
• One sample from Spain contained thiabendazole at 0.2 mg/kg (LOD MRL
  0.05 mg/kg). A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed
  that there was no concern for consumer health. We have notified the
  retailer and have written to the authorities in Spain to inform them of this
  finding.
• Three samples imported from the USA contained methomyl at 0.4, 0.6 and
  0.7 mg/kg (MRL 0.2 mg/kg); one sample of unknown origin contained
  methomyl at 0.3 mg/kg (MRL 0.2 mg/kg). A risk assessment on the
  highest level found (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that the
  NESTI for toddlers was 190% of the ARfD of 0.02 mg/kg bw/day.
  However, it is unlikely that this would cause adverse health effects
  because it is less than the dose level (0.1 mg/kg bw/day) tolerated without
  adverse effects in a volunteer study (see spinach for more details). We
  have notified the retailers and have written to the authorities in the USA to
  inform them of these findings.
• One imported sample contained chlorothalonil at 0.9 mg/kg (MRL 1
  mg/kg). The peach samples were not cryogenically milled. It is
  recognised that degradation of chlorothalonil occurs in some samples
  which have not been cryogenically milled, therefore this value could be an
  under-estimation.
• There were no UK samples, therefore there were no non-approved UK
  uses.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.




                                      18
Nectarines

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 27 samples of nectarines were tested for up to 99 pesticide
  residues, in a range of analytical suites.
• 24 of the samples were imported and 3 were of unknown origin.
• 16 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 11 of the samples tested.
• 3 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• There were no UK samples, therefore there were no non-approved UK
  uses.
• One imported sample was found to contain buprofezin (no MRL) at 0.08
  mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that
  there was no concern for consumer health.
• One of the samples was labelled as organic and did not contain any
  residues.

Previous peaches and nectarines survey results
• Peaches and nectarines were last tested in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4reportrev1.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q2 2002 report:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)

Conclusions
This survey is more extensive than that conducted previously and has found
five exceedances of the MRL (there were no exceedances in the first part of
the survey). The pesticides found are broadly similar to those in the previous
survey.

Pears (second part) (Table 15)

Introduction
Pears are sampled as part of the rolling programme. They were last sampled
in 2000. Pears have been the subject of frequent surveys since 1995 when
intelligence information indicated that chlormequat, a plant growth regulator
not approved for use on fruiting pears in the UK, was being used by some UK
growers. In addition MRL exceedances were also being seen in imported
produce. Surveys were carried out in 1995, 1997 and 1998, to investigate a
wide range of pesticides including chlormequat. In 1999 further surveys were
carried out to monitor residues of chlormequat only. Further monitoring was
carried out in 2000 to ensure that the improvements in results seen in 1999
were being maintained.

Pears are subject to seasonality with more produce from the Northern
Hemisphere e.g. the Netherlands, being available in the autumn and winter
months and crops produced in the Southern Hemisphere e.g. South Africa, on
the market during spring and summer in the UK. This is the second part of
the survey.



                                     19
Results July to November 2002
• A total of 81 samples were tested for up to 119 pesticide residues, in a
  range of analytical suites (see footnote to Table 15).
• 10 of the samples were UK origin, 65 imported and 6 were of unknown
  origin.
• 21 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 60 of the samples tested.
• 2 samples contained 7 residues.
• 1 sample contained 6 residues.
• 3 samples contained 5 residues.
• 3 samples contained 4 residues.
• 9 samples contained 3 residues.
• 23 samples contained 2 residues.
• There was one MRL exceedance in this part of the survey: dicofol in a
  sample imported from Portugal at 0.2 mg/kg (LOD MRL 0.02 mg/kg). A
  risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was
  no concern for consumer health. We have notified the retailer and have
  written to the authorities in Portugal to inform them of this finding.
• Two UK samples contained residues of pesticides which are not approved
  for use on pears in the UK. One sample contained tolylfluanid at 0.3
  mg/kg. One sample contained two residues of non-approved pesticides:
  chlormequat at 0.1 mg/kg and tolylfluanid at 0.2 mg/kg. We have notified
  the retailers of these findings.
• Residues of dithiocarbamates (MRL 3 mg/kg) were found in 23 samples
  ranging from 0.06 to 1 mg/kg. Dithiocarbamate compounds are fungicides,
  used to treat various diseases in a range of crops, including pears.
• Captan (MRL 3 mg/kg) was found in 22 samples ranging from 0.06 to 0.7
  mg/kg. Captan is a fungicide used to control various diseases in a range
  of crops, including pears.
• Phosmet (Codex MRL 10 mg/kg) was found in 21 samples ranging from
  0.07 to 0.6 mg/kg. Phosmet is a fungicide used to control a wide range of
  diseases on a variety of crops, including pears.
• Two samples imported from Belgium were found to contain diethofencarb
  at 0.06 mg/kg (no MRL). A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake
  implications’) showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• Five imported samples (1 from Argentina, 3 from Portugal and 1 from the
  Netherlands) were found to contain folpet (no MRL) at 0.5, 0.08, 0.09, 0.1
  and 0.7 mg/kg respectively. Risk assessments on the highest levels found
  (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no concern for
  consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Pears were last sampled in 2000.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2000/q4rep-00.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q2 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)



                                    20
Conclusions
No MRLs were exceeded in the first part of the survey. One sample
contained folpet at levels which exceeded the safety margins. However,
although the built-in safety margins would have been slightly eroded, this was
unlikely to result in any ill effects. Due to this finding which exceeded the
safety margins, PSD has written to the European Commission to express
concern that the MRL for folpet in pears is too high, and that it should be
reduced.

We re-focussed the second part of the survey to target pears from Portugal
and fast-tracked the folpet analysis to obtain the results quickly to determine
whether this is a more widespread issue. These results were published
separately in January this year, but are repeated here for completion. The
fast-tracked results are available on the PRC website at:
www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/pearfolpet02.pdf

In the second part of the survey, there was one MRL exceedance and two UK
samples contained residues of pesticides which are not approved for use in
the UK. The results showed much lower levels of folpet (0.7 mg/kg or lower),
and there were no concerns for consumer health.

Potatoes (second part) (Table 16)

Introduction
Potatoes are monitored annually due to their importance as a staple
component of a balanced diet. The potatoes varieties sampled included
Carlingford, Maris Piper, Estima, Romano and King Edward, amongst others.
This survey covers maincrop (or ware) potatoes and new potatoes. Some of
the MRLs are different for maincrop and new potatoes because of the harvest
interval timing. This is the second part of the survey.

Results June to November 2002
• A total of 138 samples were tested for up to 57 pesticide residues, in a
  range of analytical suites (see footnote to Table 16).
• The samples originated as follows:
  - 74 UK maincrop
  - 44 UK new
  - 5 imported maincrop
  - 8 imported new
  - 5 unknown origin maincrop
  - 2 unknown origin new
• 97 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 41 samples tested; 35 of UK origin, 3 imported
  and 3 of unknown origin.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• Two maincrop samples of UK origin contained a non-approved residue of
  tecnazene (CAC MRL 20 mg/kg), both at 0.06 mg/kg. Tecnazene
  approvals were withdrawn in January 2002. It is noted that levels up to 0.1
  mg/kg can arise through contamination during storage. The suppliers
  have been informed of these findings.


                                      21
•   Chlorpropham and oxadixyl were also found. MRLs have not yet been set
    for these pesticides on potatoes.
•   Chlorpropham was found in 23 samples ranging from 0.05 to 6.6 mg/kg.
    These results are similar to those found in the first part of the survey.
    Chlorpropham is currently under review and an interim ARfD has been
    accepted – the risk assessments were carried out using this value. The
    risk assessment on the highest level found showed that the NESTI for
    toddlers was 160% of the ARfD of 0.25 mg/kg bw/day. The NESTI for
    infants was 220% of ARfD, hence this has been included as the intakes
    are higher than for toddlers. These estimates use a processing factor as
    around 40% of the residue is estimated to be lost during cooking. The
    highest of these intakes is about 26 times lower than repeated doses in
    dog studies that indicated no adverse effects. The highest level is 128
    times lower than the level that caused increased methaemaglobin levels
    which was the effect used to set the ARfD. Therefore, despite the erosion
    of the safety factor, based on the data it is unlikely that adverse health
    effects in humans would result from these occasional exceedances.
•   A supplementary note on chlorpropham was published via the PRC
    website in February:
    www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/chlorstat.htm
•   Oxadixyl was found in 16 samples ranging from 0.02 to 0.07 mg/kg (no
    MRL). A risk assessment for the highest level found (see ‘Dietary intake
    implications’) showed that there is no concern for consumer health).
•   Other pesticide residues found, at levels below statutory levels, include
    imazalil, maleic hydrazide and thiabendazole.
•   Of the 41 samples in which residues were found:
    - 1 UK maincrop sample contained 3 pesticide residues.
    - 5 UK samples (4 maincrop and 1 new) contained 2 pesticide residues.
    - 29 UK (20 maincrop, 9 new), 3 imported (1 maincrop and 2 new) and 3
        samples of unknown origin (2 maincrop and 1 new) contained a single
        pesticide residue.
•   Two maincrop samples were labelled as organic and did not contain any
    residues.
•   None of the new potato samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Potatoes were last sampled in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4rep-01rev1.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q2 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)

Conclusions
Three samples tested in the first part of the survey contained MRL
exceedances. There were also four occurrences of tecnazene in UK samples.
It is possible that the tecnazene was applied prior to its withdrawal in January
2002, and therefore these may not be illegal uses. In the second part of the
survey, there were two occurrences of tecnazene in UK samples, which are
recorded as non-approved use, as they were obtained in July and October.




                                      22
However, it is noted that levels up to 0.1 mg/kg can arise through
contamination during storage.

Spinach (second part) (Table 17)

Introduction
Spinach has been included in this year’s survey as part of the rolling
programme of commodities tested on a regular basis. Samples of fresh or
canned spinach were purchased. This is the second part of the survey.

Results July to November 2002
• A total of 37 samples were tested for 98 pesticide residues.
• 19 samples were UK origin, 10 were imported and 8 were of unknown
  origin.
• 25 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Of the 12 samples which contained residues, 3 were of UK origin, 6 were
  from Spain and 3 were of unknown origin.
• No multiple residues were found.
• Two samples imported from Spain contained residues of methomyl
  exceeding the MRL: one at 3.5 and one at 6.1 mg/kg (MRL 2 mg/kg). A
  risk assessment on the highest level found (see ‘Dietary intake
  implications’) showed that the NESTI for adults and toddlers were 280 and
  460% of the ARfD of 0.02 mg/kg bw/day. Such a high exceedance is of
  concern, but it is unlikely that these intakes would cause adverse health
  effects because they are within a level (0.1 mg/kg bw/day) that volunteers
  tolerated without such effects. The ARfD is based on decreased red blood
  cell acetylcholinesterase activity and increased salivation, which were
  seen at doses 2 or 3 times higher and were reversible. The suppliers have
  been informed of these findings.
• The PRC had requested early notification of the methomyl results from the
  analytical laboratory. Both of these results were notified to other member
  states via the European Commission’s Rapid Alert System for Food and
  Feed (RASFF). The alert was published via the PSD website on 21 March
  2003.
• Methomyl is a carbamate compound, used to control insect pests.
• There were no non-approved UK uses.
• 1 sample was labelled as organic and did not contain any residues.

Previous survey results
• Spinach was last sampled in 1998.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/wppr98/reports/wppr1.htm)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
The first part of this year’s survey contained 3 MRL exceedances in Spanish
spinach (one of azoxystrobin, one of cypermethrin and one of methomyl). The
exceedance of methomyl was at 3.2 mg/kg (MRL 2 mg/kg). The second part
of the survey contained 2 exceedances of methomyl in Spanish samples: one



                                    23
at 3.5 and one at 6.1 mg/kg. These results were reported to other member
states (including Spain) via the Commission’s Rapid Alert System for
Foodstuffs (RASFF) in March. PSD is investigating the possibility of
undertaking a special survey of spinach in 2003.

Sweet Peppers (second part) (Table 18)

Introduction

Previous surveys of sweet peppers have indicated high residues of certain
insecticides at levels which might cause potential concern for consumers.
Additionally, intelligence information suggested mis-use of the growth
regulator chlormequat on this commodity. Therefore, this is a targeted survey
to sample sweet peppers and test specifically for a limited range of problem
analytes. This is the second part of the survey.

Results September to November 2002
• A total of 36 samples were tested for 6 pesticide residues.
• 9 samples were UK origin, 25 were imported and 2 were of unknown
  origin.
• 35 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• A residue was detected in 1 sample from Spain.
• No multiple residues were found.
• There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this part of
  the survey.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Sweet Peppers were last sampled in 2000
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2000/q3-00-report.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q2 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep-02.pdf)

Conclusions
This report gives the results for the second part of this survey on sweet
peppers. The results for the first part showed that none of the samples tested
contained any residues from those sought. Only one sample in the second
part of the survey contained a residue, well below the MRL.




                                     24
TROPICAL FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SURVEYS

Background

It has been observed that individual surveys of tropical foods, such as yams,
starfruit and mangoes often reveal high numbers of residue results in
exceedance of their EU MRLs. It is important to understand the wider
problems facing growers and exporters of tropical foods, and to realise why
this should be the case, before this issue can begin to be addressed. Often
tropical foods are imported from developing countries. The MRLs for certain
important pesticides used on tropical foods may have been set at the ‘limit of
determination’ (LOD). The LOD is the lowest concentration of a pesticide
residue or contaminant that can be identified and quantitatively measured in a
specified food, agricultural commodity or animal feed with an acceptable
degree of certainty by the method of analysis. LOD MRLs arise, not because
of safety reasons of that pesticide residue on that crop, but because there has
been no commercial support to conduct the necessary experimental trials to
establish an MRL on tropical fruit and vegetables. In recognition of this
problem, the European Commission is establishing an aid programme for
ACP (Africa –Caribbean –Pacific) countries which in the longer term should
help to address this issue.

Sweet potatoes (second part) (Table 19)

Introduction

Sweet potatoes were last surveyed in 1995. However, a more recent yam
survey indicated problems with post-harvest dips. Sweet potatoes are similar
to yams in how they are grown and treated. It was considered necessary to
conduct a survey on sweet potatoes to ensure that the same problems
encountered with yams did not also affect sweet potatoes. Although this
survey is part of the rolling programme of fruit and vegetables, it is also a
targeted survey, looking at the pesticides which have been of concern for
yams. This is the second part of the survey.

Results April to November 2002
• A total of 24 samples were tested for 115 pesticide residues.
• 18 samples were imported and 6 were of unknown origin.
• 19 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• 5 samples contained residues of dicloran (no MRL) ranging from 0.07 –
  1.3 mg/kg. Acute risk assessment is not relevant for dicloran based on its
  toxicological profile, so acute intakes have not been carried out (i.e. it is
  not acutely toxic). Chronic intakes have been carried out (based on a
  median residue of 0.05 mg/kg) and all the intakes were less than the ADI.
• Dicloran is used as a fungicide to control a variety of diseases on a range
  of crops.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• There were no UK samples, therefore there were no non-approved UK
  uses.


                                      25
•   None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Sweet Potatoes were last sampled in 1995
• A total of 26 samples were tested for 7 pesticide residues.
• Four (15%) samples were found to contain residues of thiabendazole (no
   MRL) at 0.2 to 0.5 mg/kg.
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q1 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/firstq2002/Q1report.pdf)

Conclusions
As for the first part of this survey, the only residue found was of dicloran. The
levels in this part of the survey were lower than in the first part.

    ANIMAL PRODUCT SURVEYS

Cow’s Milk (fourth part) (Table 20)

Introduction
Whole cow’s milk and partially skimmed cow’s milk were analysed in this
survey. A reduced list of pesticide residues were sought this year, since
residues have not been found in milk for a number of years, except for
gamma-HCH (lindane).
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/2002prog.htm).

Results October to December 2002
• A total of 54 samples of milk (all UK origin) were tested for residues of
  chlormequat and gamma-HCH.
• No residues were found in any of the samples tested.
• 10 of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous results
• Cow’s milk was last sampled in July to September 2002.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
This quarter results show that no residues of either gamma-HCH or
chlormequat were found in the samples tested. We are continuing to closely
monitor cow’s milk for any recurrence of the gamma-HCH results seen in
2001.

Mince (second part) (Table 21)

Introduction

This is the first time that various types of mince have been sampled in one
survey, although mince of a particular type may have been tested on its own
before, e.g. a survey of beef and beef mince. Samples of beef, chicken, lamb,
pork and turkey mince were purchased. This is the second part of the survey.


                                       26
Results September to October 2002
• A total of 72 samples of mince were tested for 11 organochlorine pesticide
  residues.
• 50 beef mince samples were included; 44 UK and 6 of unknown origin.
• 2 chicken mince samples were included, both of UK origin.
• 10 lamb mince samples were included; 8 UK and 2 of unknown origin.
• 6 pork mince samples were included, all of UK origin.
• 4 turkey mince samples were included, all of UK origin.
• 69 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 1 UK beef mince sample; DDT (as p,p’-DDT,
  p,p’-DDE and p,p’-TDE) at 0.07 mg/kg (MRL 1 mg/kg). The presence of
  both p,p’-DDT and p,p’-TDE could indicate that the animal was exposed to
  recent use of DDT. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• Residues were detected in 2 lamb mince samples of unknown origin: DDT
  (both as p,p’-DDE) at 0.02 and 0.03 mg/kg (MRL 1 mg/kg). This
  metabolite is persistent in the environment, and its presence does not
  suggest recent use of DDT.
• There were no multiple residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• Two samples were labelled as organic, and did not contain any residues.

Previous results
• This is the first time that different types of mince have been sampled.
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q1 2002
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/firstq2002/Q1report.pdf)

Conclusion
In the first part of the survey, residues were found in 5 of the mince samples
tested. These were all at levels which would not give rise to consumer
concern. In the second part of the survey, 3 samples contained residues of
DDT. One of these gave cause for concern, as the metabolites found could
indicate recent use of DDT. Low level residues of DDT are not unexpected,
as it is an environmental contaminant. We have written to the retailer for
further information on this finding.

Sausages (second part) (Table 22)

Introduction
Residues findings in sausages are expected to be low and similar to the
unprocessed commodities which make up the sausages (e.g. beef, pork,
turkey etc). This survey was conducted as part of the PRC’s rolling
programme, and is the second part of the survey.

Results September to October 2002
• A total of 72 samples of sausages were tested for 11 organochlorine
  pesticide residues.
• 2 beef sausage samples were included; 1 UK and 1 of unknown origin.


                                      27
•   70 pork sausage samples were included, 54 UK and 16 of unknown origin.
•   No residues were found in any of the samples tested.
•   None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous results
• Sausages were last sampled in 1997.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr97a.pdf)
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr97b.pdf)
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q1 2002
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/firstq2002/Q1report.pdf)

Conclusion
In the first part of the survey, residues of gamma-HCH were found in 1 sample
of sausages tested, at low levels which would not give rise to consumer
concern. These interim results suggested infrequent low level residues. This
was confirmed in the second part of the survey, when no residues were found.

Sea fish (Table 23)

Introduction
Sea fish were last sampled in 1999. These are the results for all samples
collected in 2002. Examples include bream, sea bass, tuna, swordfish, red
snapper and tilapia.

Results 2002
• A total of 69 samples of sea fish were tested for 11 organochlorine
  pesticide residues.
• 60 of the samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 9 of the samples tested.
• DDT was found in 8 imported samples and in 1 sample of unknown origin,
  ranging from 0.002 to 0.009 mg/kg (no MRL). The types of fish containing
  residues were sea bass, sea bream and swordfish.
• The metabolites found were p,p’-DDT, p,p’-DDE and p,p’-TDE.
• A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there
  was no concern for consumer health.
• No multiple residues were found.
• There are no MRLs set for fish.

Previous results
• Sea fish was last sampled in 1999.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/wppr99/report-99.htm)

Conclusion
Low level residues of DDT were found in this survey. They are not
unexpected, as it is an environmental contaminant. The results are similar to
those found in the 1999 survey.

  CEREAL PRODUCT SURVEYS

Bread (ordinary) (second part) (Table 24)

Introduction
Bread is monitored annually due to its importance as a staple component of a
balanced diet. This survey covers ordinary bread, such as brown, white,
multigrain and wholemeal. Savoury breads, such as cheese or garlic bread
have also been sampled during 2002 and the results are reported below.

Results September to October 2002
• A total of 72 samples of brown, white and other types (such as wholemeal)
  of ordinary bread were tested for 23 pesticide residues.
• There were 9 UK brown, 16 UK other and 41 UK white samples tested,
  and 1 unknown origin brown, 1 unknown origin other and 4 unknown origin
  white samples tested.
• 32 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 40 samples tested.
• 7 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances.
• Two pesticide residues were found: chlormequat and glyphosate.
• Chlormequat (no MRL) was found in 33 samples ranging from 0.05 to
  0.2 mg/kg. A risk assessment carried out at the highest level found (see
  ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no concern for
  consumer health.
• Glyphosate (no MRL) was found in 14 samples ranging from 0.1 to
  0.4 mg/kg. A risk assessment carried out at the highest level found (see
  ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no concern for
  consumer health.
• 1 sample of white bread was labelled as organic and did not contain any
  residues from those sought.

Previous results
• Ordinary bread was last sampled in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4rep-01rev1.pdf).
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
No MRLs were exceeded in this survey. Residues of chlormequat, glyphosate
and pirimiphos-methyl were found in the first part of the survey. Only
chlormequat and glyphosate were found in the second part of the survey.
These three pesticides are commonly used on cereal crops, and residues
have been found in other cereal products, therefore these findings are not
unexpected. None of the residues found were of concern for consumer
health.

Bread (savoury) (second part) (Table 25)

Introduction
Bread is monitored annually due to its importance as a staple component of a
balanced diet. This survey covers savoury bread, such as cheese, garlic,
potato, olive and tomato bread. Ordinary bread, i.e. brown, white and other
types have also been sampled during 2002 and the results are reported
above.

Results September to October 2002
• A total of 36 samples of savoury breads were tested for 23 pesticide
  residues.
• There were 29 samples of UK origin and 7 of unknown origin.
• 25 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 11 samples tested.
• 2 residues were found in 1 sample.
• Two pesticide residues were found: chlormequat and pirimiphos-methyl.
• Chlormequat (no MRL) was found in 10 samples ranging from 0.05 to
  0.1 mg/kg. A risk assessment carried out at the highest level found in
  bread (including ordinary bread) (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed
  that there was no concern for consumer health.
• Pirimiphos-methyl (no MRL) was found in 2 samples at 0.09 mg/kg.
  Chlormequat was also present in one of these samples. The residues of
  pirimiphos-methyl are below the Codex MRL for ordinary bread of 0.5
  mg/kg, and there was no concern for consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous results
• Savoury bread was last sampled in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4rep-01rev1.pdf).
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusions
Residues of chlormequat, glyphosate and pirimiphos-methyl were found in the
first part of this survey. Only chlormequat and pirimiphos-methyl were found
in the second part of the survey. These three pesticides are commonly used
on cereal crops, and they have been found in other cereal products, therefore
these findings are not unexpected. None of the residues found were of
concern for consumer health.

Flour (second part) (Table 26)

Introduction
Flour was last sampled in 1995 for carbendazim and glyphosate residues.
This current survey has looked for a much wider range of pesticide residues
which may be used in the production of cereals, and therefore may be present
in cereal products. White and wholemeal flour was sampled. This is the
second part of the survey.



                                     30
Results October to November 2002
• A total of 36 samples were tested for 32 pesticide residues.
• 1 rye UK origin sample, 22 white UK origin samples, 12 wholemeal UK
  samples and1 white sample of unknown origin were tested.
• 11 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 25 of the samples tested.
• 2 wholemeal samples of UK origin contained 3 residues.
• 3 wholemeal samples of UK origin contained 2 residues.
• Three pesticide residues were found: chlormequat, glyphosate and
  pirimiphos-methyl.
• Chlormequat (CAC MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 24 samples ranging from
  0.06 to 0.3 mg/kg.
• Glyphosate (CAC MRL 0.5 mg/kg) was found in 5 samples ranging from
  0.1 to 0.3 mg/kg. Four of these samples also contained chlormequat.
• Pirimiphos-methyl (CAC MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 3 samples ranging
  from 0.09 to 0.1 mg/kg. All these samples also contained chlormequat.
• No MRLs were exceeded.
• 1 sample was labelled as organic and did not contain any residues.

Previous results
• Flour was last sampled in 1995.
• This was a targeted survey to check residues of carbendazim and
   glyphosate only.
• No residues of carbendazim were found. 3 organic samples of UK origin
   and 2 samples of white flour of unknown origin were found to contain
   glyphosate residues, ranging from 0.05 to 0.1 mg/kg.

•   The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002 report:
    (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
The results for chlormequat are comparable to the residue findings in bread.
Therefore processing of flour into bread does not appear to reduce
chlormequat residues significantly. There appears to be a slightly higher
occurrence of multiple residues in wholemeal samples, which may be
because the whole grain is used to make the flour. No MRLs were exceeded
in this survey and none of the residues were of concern for consumer health.

Infant food – cereal based (second part) (Table 27)

Introduction
This survey of cereal based infant food covers rice pudding, rusks, biscuits,
porridge and products containing fruit and cereal where cereal was the main
ingredient on the label. The new EC MRL of 0.01 mg/kg for all individual
pesticide residues in baby food came into force on 1 July 2002. The baby
foods directive was published in 1996, which has given the infant food
industry a long lead-in period to comply with the MRLs. This is the second
part of the survey, which spans the period of implementation.


                                     31
Results July to October 2002
• A total of 73 samples were tested for 40 pesticide residues.
• 63 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• 5 samples were UK manufactured, 16 were imported and 52 were of
  unknown origin.
• Residues were found in 10 samples tested.
• 2 residues were found in 2 samples.
• The new MRL (of 0.01 mg/kg for each individual pesticide) was exceeded
  in 3 samples of unknown origin.
• One sample contained chlormequat at 0.03 mg/kg.
• One sample contained pirimiphos-methyl at 0.04 mg/kg (this sample also
  contained chlormequat at 0.01 mg/kg).
• One sample contained exceedances of 2 pesticides – chlormequat at 0.02
  mg/kg and pirimiphos-methyl at 0.04 mg/kg.
• Risk assessments on the highest levels found (see ‘Dietary intake
  implications’) showed that there was no concern for infant health.
• 27 samples were labelled as organic and none contained any residues.
• Analytical difficulties were experienced in the first part of this survey with
  the analysis of the samples for glyphosate. The method has since been
  developed, and no residues were found. We will be updating the quarter
  three report in the near future.

Previous results
• Infant food – cereal based was last sampled in 1999.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/wppr99/report-99.htm).
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
In the first part of the infant food survey, residues of hydrogen phosphide and
pirimiphos-methyl were found at low levels. However, none of the residues
found were at levels of concern for infant health. There were exceedances of
the new MRLs in 3 samples in the second part of the survey. None of the
residues found were at levels of concern for infant health. The brand owners
have been informed of these results.


 MISCELLANEOUS SURVEYS


Low fat spreads (Table 28)

Introduction
This survey has been carried out due to their increasing consumption as an
alternative to butter. They have not been surveyed before, as such, but a
survey of margarine was carried out in 1996. The last survey of butter was
undertaken in 2002 – this was reported in the Q1 report. Samples included




                                      32
sunflower spread, vegetable spread, olive spread and low fat butter. The fat
in the samples is the part which is analysed.

Results July to September 2002
• A total of 96 samples were tested for 10 organochlorine pesticide residues.
• 69 samples were UK origin, 14 were imported and 13 were of unknown
  origin.
• None of the samples tested contained any residues from those sought.
• 2 samples were labelled as organic.

Previous survey results
• Margarine was last surveyed in 1996.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr96.pdf)
• Butter was last surveyed in 2002. The results were published in the Q1
   report.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/firstq2002/Q1report.pdf)

Conclusion
None of the samples tested were found to contain any residues from those
sought.

Popcorn (second part) (Table 29)

Introduction
This year is the first time that popcorn has been sampled. It is a popular
snack amongst children in particular. All the samples of popcorn were pre-
popped, i.e. ready-to-eat.

Results October to November 2002
• A total of 16 samples of popcorn, 1 UK manufactured and 15 of unknown
  origin, were tested for up to 21 pesticide residues in a range of analytical
  suites (see footnote to Table 29).
• 12 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• There were no multiple residues.
• 1 sample contained residues of deltamethrin at 0.1 mg/kg (no MRL). A
  risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was
  no concern for consumer health.
• 2 samples contained residues of hydrogen phosphide at 0.001 and 0.007
  mg/kg. A risk assessment on the highest level found (see ‘Dietary intake
  implications’) showed that there was no concern for consumer health.
• 1 sample contained residues of pirimiphos-methyl at 0.3 mg/kg. A risk
  assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no
  concern for consumer health.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous results
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)




                                     33
Conclusion
Residues at low levels were found in four of the samples.       None of the
residues were of concern for consumer health.

Polenta (second part) (Table 29)

Introduction
This year is the first time that polenta has been sampled. It has grown in
popularity as an alternative to pasta, rice or potatoes. All the samples were
analysed as they were sold, i.e. as ‘ready made’, or ‘ready to eat’, polenta.

Results October to November 2002
• A total of 20 samples of polenta, 16 imported and 4 of unknown origin,
  were tested for up to 21 pesticide residues in a range of analytical suites
  (see footnote to Table 29).
• None of the samples contained any residues from those sought.
• 1 organic sample was tested and did not contain any residues from those
  sought.

Previous results
• The first part of this survey was reported in Q3 2002 report:
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2002/Q3rep-02.pdf)

Conclusion
This report gives the results for the second part of this survey on polenta.
These results show that none of the samples tested were found to contain any
residues from those sought, as for the first part of the survey.




                                     34
 DIETARY INTAKE IMPLICATIONS

1. BACKGROUND ON RISK ASSESSMENTS

General
Risk assessments are routinely carried out under the following circumstances:

(i)        exceedance of EC, UK or CODEX MRL
(ii)       evidence of a UK non-approved use
(iii)      other selected cases where there might be expected to be consumer
           intake concerns. In these circumstances there may or may not be an
           MRL in place.

Most concerns relating to consumer intake are for short term exposure rather
than chronic exposure. This is especially true of the PRC monitoring data
where in most cases the majority of samples contain residues below the
reporting limit. Short-term risk assessments are a relatively new scientific
development and therefore for MRLs which were set several years ago, short-
term risk assessments would not have been considered. Therefore for some
pesticides which have ‘old’ MRLs, it cannot be assumed that residues below
the MRL will result in acceptable intakes within the Acute Reference Dose
(ARfD). Therefore, it is necessary to carry out risk assessments selectively
where these concerns arise. Expert judgement is used to determine when a
risk assessment is necessary, however, some of the triggers used to
determine when a risk assessment is needed include:

•       pesticides with a low acceptable daily intake (ADI) value and/or low ARfD
        value
•       relatively high residues (usually residues at levels ≥ 50% of the MRL,
        where there is an MRL)
•       residues found in commodities for which consumption is relatively high
        (especially for toddlers which are often the ‘critical’ group for intake
        estimates)
•       and those commodities for which a ‘variability’ factor is applied in the short
        term risk assessment.

Processed commodities
The statutory controls for pesticide residues in food are contained in ‘The
Pesticides (Maximum Residue Levels in Crops, Food and Feeding Stuffs)
(England and Wales) Regulations 1999’ (as amended). This covers raw
commodities but also processed, dried and composite foods. MRLs may be
extended to these products but levels are not specifically laid down in
legislation. They are derived by calculation on an individual product basis.

It is possible to compare the residue in the processed commodity with the
MRL for the raw commodity and to make an approximation as to whether the
residue found is likely to be within that for the raw commodity, taking into
account its proportion in the processed commodity (detailed information on
composition is not always known/given). However, this simplistic ‘mass


                                           35
balance’ based approach is not always appropriate. It is possible for residues
to concentrate in the processed commodity e.g. in oilseed rape a fat-soluble
pesticide may result in higher residues in the oil compared to residues in the
raw seed. Such processing data are specific to individual pesticides and
depend on the actual process and the physical chemical properties of the
pesticide. In these cases a processing factor is applied to the MRL in order to
back- calculate the estimated residue in the raw commodity, which is then
compared with the MRL. Because various assumptions are made, the
calculations are only estimates, but they can indicate where gross
exceedance of MRLs occur.

In cases where residues would be expected to concentrate in a processed
commodity and/or the intake estimate based on the raw commodity indicated
intake at or above ca 10% of the ADI/ARfD, as part of the approval process
PSD would receive processing data as part of the pesticide registration
package so that the consumer risk assessments could be refined.

Consumption data are available for selected major processed commodities
which are used to refine risk assessments e.g. boiled potatoes, crisps, fruit
juice, sugar, bread and wine. Where such consumption data are not
available, the intake estimates are based on the total consumption of the raw
commodity which would represent the worst case. For example, breakfast
cereals would be based on total cereal consumption data. In the case of
mixed products, assumptions are made as to the likely origin(s) of the
residues with reference to the food composition information. Intake estimates
are then made based on the consumption data for the raw commodity (or
commodities) to which the residue is most likely to relate. This represents a
worst case. An example of this is iprodione in cereal bars. The most likely
origin of this residue is the fruit rather than the cereals. Assuming the cereal
bar contained raisins we could carry out a risk assessment based on total
grape consumption (which would include raisin consumption).

2. RESULTS FOR THIS QUARTER

a. Risk assessments for samples containing residues above their MRL,
   or where there is no MRL

The consumer intake assessments focus on short-term (acute) dietary
exposure as being of most relevance and most critical in assessing the risk to
consumers (see Table D). Chronic risk assessments have been carried out
on a case by case basis, but are not routinely reported (see Table C).

Consumer exposure estimates have been compared to the most appropriate
ARfD where available and relevant. Where a specific ARfD has not been
readily available, short-term exposure estimates have been compared to the
ADI. Established independently peer reviewed toxicological end points have
been used wherever possible. However some reference doses used have
been determined by PSD and have not been independently peer reviewed
and should be regarded as provisional.



                                      36
Acute toxicology is not considered relevant for all pesticides. In terms of the
pesticides that have been found in fruit and vegetables through the
surveillance programme it would include tecnazene, maleic hydrazide,
bitertanol, buprofezin, dicloran, diphenylamine, ethoxyquin, furalaxyl, imazalil,
iprodione, kresoxim-methyl, myclobutanil, permethrin, pendimethalin, 2-
phenylphenol, propargite, propyzamide, quintozene, thiabendazole, tolclofos-
methyl and vinclozolin.

Long term (chronic) exposure assessments will have been routinely compared
to ADIs when pesticide registration were issued, when MRLs were established
and during any UK or EU reviews that have been carried out. Long term
exposure assessments are carried out using median residue levels, rather
than highest residues. Therefore, long term risk assessments would only
need to be carried out where the PRC data indicated a high proportion of
samples contained residues above the MRL (would result in a higher median
residue level than that previously assessed), or where there is no MRL and
acute toxicology is not considered relevant for the particular pesticide
concerned.

Probabilistic modelling

The standard calculation of consumer exposure use realistic consumption
data and residue levels. However, they will tend to overestimate intake in
most circumstances. This is due to the assumptions used; fruit and
vegetables would contain high levels of residue in an individual unit and that
these would be consumed by high-level consumers i.e. at the 97.5th
percentile. They do not take into account the possible range of residue levels
and consumption distributions that may occur in reality. These possible
combinations of residues and consumption levels can be taken into account
using modelling/simulation techniques to produce probability distributions of
residue intake levels to indicates the range of consumer intakes, presented as
a probabilistic assessment of consumer exposure. Application of these
techniques is a relatively new development in consumer risk assessment.

BRAND NAMES

Annex 1 attached shows the brand name information for each sample analysed
with details of the levels of residues detected. Results shown in green represent
exceedances of the statutory MRL. Results shown in blue represent UK non-
approved uses found in the surveys considered in this report. Organic products
are denoted by ? in the brand name annex.

Where non-approved uses, MRL exceedances or residues have been found in
produce claiming to be organic, the respective retail outlets have been notified of
the results and have been invited to respond. Responses received are included
in Appendix 1.


BRAND NAME POLICY


The Brand Naming Policy

Ministers have decided that brand name information should be published as part
of the Government food chemical surveillance programme. Brand names have
been published for most pesticide residue surveys since 1998. This policy was
reviewed in 2000/1 where Ministers agreed to the continuation of this policy.

Presentation of the Information

Brand name information is set out in full in the annex to this quarterly report. The
sample identification numbers cross-refer the annex to the tables in the main
report. Results involving exceedances of MRLs or (where UK produce is
concerned) residues of non-approved pesticides are shown in bold.

Certain samples are excluded from the release of brand name information.
These include samples taken as part of any pesticide residues enforcement
programme and those taken as part of surveys to study individual people/farms.

There is no ready definition of what constitutes a brand in all cases. For clearly
branded produce like breakfast cereals or biscuits the “brand owner” is shown. In
the case of “own brand” goods this may be one of the multiple retailers. For fruit
and vegetables the retailer is generally shown. For meat, milk and most other
animal products the retailer is also generally shown. Finally, for all commodities
the country of origin is shown where this was displayed either on the produce or
in the store.

In the case of exceedances of MRLs or the presence of non-approved pesticides
the brand owner/retailer/grower is notified of the result in advance of publication
of the report and given the opportunity to comment within four weeks. The
comments provided are reproduced in Appendix 1.

                                        43
Interpretation of the Brand Naming Information

The information on brand names should be seen in an appropriate context. The
programme is not designed to generate statistically valid information on residues
in particular crops. This would require a much larger number of samples to be
collected which would either substantially increase costs or greatly reduce the
range of different foods that could be sampled in any one year. However, efforts
are made to collect samples from a variety of outlets in a range of locations,
particularly over a period of years. The programme should therefore generate
information on the typical residues profile of particular types of produce and on
major trends in the incidence and levels of pesticides.

In approaching the inclusion of brand names the PRC has sought to make the
samples taken for its surveys as representative of the market as reasonably
possible. Market research information has been used to establish market shares
with a view to structuring surveys to collect samples of each particular brand
broadly proportionate to its market share.         However, there are obvious
constraints to this approach. It would not for instance be worthwhile to increase
substantially the number of samples for a minor commodity simply to ensure that
each brand was sampled. The approach has had to be more to ensure
representative samples across a sector, like fruit and vegetables, than to seek
representative samples for each brand for each commodity. This unavoidably
means that results from an individual survey cannot be taken as a fair
representation of the residues status of any particular brand.

A particular issue arises in relation to the country of origin of fruit and vegetables.
The origins included in the reports are those recorded either on the produce or in
the store. However, the fresh produce trade has pointed out that it is not
uncommon for mixing to occur on shop shelves. The PRC has responded by
increasing the proportion of pre-packed goods sampled. However, pre-packed
samples are not available for some produce in some stores and it could also
introduce bias to surveys if loose produce were not sampled. Loose produce is
therefore sampled but the origin of the sample should be interpreted with a
degree of caution.

Current Developments

The 2003 programme will be encompassing various changes to sampling as a
result of the consultation exercise in 2002.

GLOSSARY OF COMMONLY USED TERMS OR ABBREVIATIONS

Acaricide: a type of insecticide used specifically to control spider pests.

Acceptable daily intake (ADI): This is the amount of a chemical which can be
consumed every day for a lifetime in the practical certainty, on the basis of all
known facts, that no harm will result. It is expressed in milligrams of the chemical
per kilogram body weight of the consumer. The starting point for the derivation of
the ADI is usually the ‘no observed adverse effect level’ (NOAEL) that has been
observed in animal studies for toxicity. This is then divided by an uncertainty
factor (most often 100) to allow for the possibility that animals may be less
sensitive than humans and also to account for possible variation in sensitivity
between individuals. The studies from which NOAELs and hence ADIs are
derived take into account any impurities in the pesticide active substance as
manufactured, and also any toxic breakdown products of the pesticide.

Acute reference dose (ARfD): This is intended to define (on the basis of all
known facts at the time of the evaluation) an estimate of a chemical substance in
food (or drinking water), expressed on a bodyweight basis, that can be ingested
over a short period of time, usually during one meal or one day, without
appreciable health risk to the consumer [JMPR].

Good agricultural practice in the use of pesticides (GAP): The nationally
authorised safe uses of pesticides under conditions necessary for effective and
reliable pest control (the way products should be used according to the statutory
conditions of approval which are stated on the label). GAP encompasses a
range of pesticide applications up to the highest authorised rates of use, applied
in a manner which leaves a residue which is the smallest practicable. Authorised
safe uses are determined at the national level and include nationally registered
recommended uses, which take into account public and occupational health and
environmental safety considerations. Actual conditions include any stage in the
production, storage, transport, distribution and processing of food commodities
and animal feed.

Analyte: a pesticide itself or a break-down product from a pesticide when it is
degraded, or metabolised.

‘Critical GAP’: Sometimes the GAP is referred to as the ‘critical’ GAP. This is
the conditions of use which give the highest residue, in the edible part of the
crop.

Cryogenic milling: Processing of commodities at very low temperatures can be
achieved by milling/grinding pre-frozen samples in the presence of dry ice, a
procedure known as ‘cryogenic milling’.




                                         46
High level consumer: A term used in UK risk assessment calculations to
describe the amount of food consumed by a person. Rather than using average
values, the PRC uses the 97.5 th percentile value which is generally about three
times the average amount consumed. This takes account of different eating
patterns that may occur throughout the population.

Imported: The tables in the reports record whether the sample was of UK origin,
or imported. This can mean different things depending on the commodity. See
also ‘Origin’. The PRC report the country from where the produce has been
imported only if this is clear from the packaging or labelling.

Limit of determination (LOD): The limit of determination is the lowest
concentration of a pesticide residue or contaminant that can be identified and
quantitatively measured in a specified food, agricultural commodity or animal
feed with an acceptable degree of certainty by the method of analysis.

Maximum residue level (MRL): The maximum concentration of a pesticide
residue (expressed as mg/kg) legally permitted in or on food commodities and
animal feeds. MRLs are based on good agricultural practice data and residues in
foods derived from commodities that comply with the respective MRLs are
intended to be toxicologically acceptable. MRLs are not in themselves ‘safety
limits’.

MRLs are intended primarily as a check that GAP is being followed and to assist
international trade in produce treated with pesticides. MRLs are not safety limits,
and exposure to residues in excess of an MRL does not automatically imply a
hazard to health.

Website link : www.pesticides.gov.uk/legislation/MRLs_Legislation/mrl.htm

Maximum Residue Limits (CODEX or CAC): In cases where there are no UK
or EC MRLs, the acceptability of residues may be judged against Codex
Maximum Residue Limits. Although not embodied in UK statute, Codex limits are
taken as presumptive standards. These limits give an indication of the likely
highest residue that should occur in edible crops. These are based on world
wide uses and the residues trials data to support those uses, at the time of
evaluation (date of setting the limits is specified and thus the Maximum Residue
Limit applicable up to that year, but will not take into account subsequent
approved uses.)

There are occasions where the MRL that has been set may not reflect UK Good
Agricultural Practice (e.g. the Codex MRLs for dithiocarbamates and
propamocarb on lettuce). In such circumstances it is possible to exceed the
Codex MRL through a UK approved use. This factor needs to be taken into
account when assessing results.




                                        47
Maximum Residue Levels set at the LOD: For some pesticides and
commodities, insufficient trials data are available on which to set a maximum
residue level. In these cases, the MRL may be set at a default level, i.e. at the
limit of determination (LOD) where analytical methods can reasonably detect the
presence of the pesticide. These MRLs are not based on Good Agricultural
Practice (GAP).
MRL exceedances: when a residue is found at a level higher than that set for
the MRL.
Technical exceedances: when an MRL has been set at the LOD because there
have been no data to support a higher level; usually for produce from third
countries.

MRL exceedances and relationship with the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI):
Before permitting any use of a pesticide, a detailed assessment is made to
ensure that residues in foods derived from commodities comply with MRLs and
will not give rise to unacceptable risks to consumers. MRLs do take account of
consumer safety aspects and, in effect, are set at levels below safety limits.
However, MRLs must not be confused with safety limits, which are expressed in
terms of the acceptable daily intake (ADI) of a particular pesticide residue from all
sources. The ADI (expressed as mg/kg bw/day) is the amount of chemical that
can be consumed every day of an individual’s entire lifetime in the practical
certainty, on the basis of all known facts, that no harm will result. See ADI for
further information.

Whenever unexpectedly high or unusual residues occur during monitoring, the
risk to consumers, from exposure to residues at the highest levels found, is
assessed by comparison of predicted intakes with the ADI or ARfD as
appropriate.

No MRL: For certain pesticides, an MRL may not have been set. (See section
on ‘Dietary intake implications’ for risk assessments for pesticides which do not
have an MRL).

Metabolite: a degradation product from a pesticide when it is metabolised.

NEDI: National estimate of dietary intake

NESTI: National estimate of short-term intake

                                         N
No observed adverse effect level ( OAEL): The highest level of continual
exposure to a chemical which causes no significant adverse effect on
morphology, biochemistry, functional capacity, growth, development or life span
of individuals of the target species which may be animal or human.

Origin: The brand name annex reports the origins of the samples tested. This
can mean different things depending on the commodity. For example, butter is
often labelled as ‘UK origin’, however, the majority of it comes in bulk from New


                                        48
Zealand and is split into smaller blocks and packaged in the UK. Lettuce is a
fresh produce and ‘UK origin’ usually means that it has been grown and
packaged in the UK. Processed commodities such as cereal bars often contain
multiple raw ingredients, each of which may come from a different source/origin.
Therefore, the origin of the produce usually reflects the place where it was
manufactured. The PRC report the origin as stated on the packaging or labelling
of the commodity concerned, unless other more accurate information is available
to indicate that the origin is from elsewhere. Many products are listed as
‘unknown origin’ because the labelling does not give this information.

Permitted Level (PL): The permitted levels (expressed as mg/kg), in specific
commodities, of some substances which can be classified as pesticides but are
controlled under the Miscellaneous Food Additives Regulations 1995 (S.I. 1995
No. 3187).

Pesticide: A pesticide is any substance, preparation or organism prepared or
used for destroying any pest. The majority of pesticides sought by the PRC in its
monitoring are those used to control pests in agricultural crops, although non-
agricultural products may be included where there is a specific reason for doing
so, e.g. where there are implications in terms of possible intakes of residues.

Probabilistic modelling: the standard methods for calculating consumer
exposure are based on point estimates that use single values for consumption
and residue levels in the crop. Whilst these use realistic consumption data from
UK surveys and residue levels from actual trials, they will tend to overestimate
intake in most circumstances. This is due to the assumptions used, for example,
fruit and vegetables would contain high levels of residue in an individual unit and
that these would be consumed by high level consumers i.e. at the 97.5th
percentile. They do not take into account the possible range of residue levels
and consumption distributions that may occur in reality. These possible
combinations of residues and consumption levels can be taken into account
using modelling/simulation techniques to produce probability distributions of
residue intake levels to indicate the range of consumer intakes, presented as a
probabilistic assessment of consumer exposure, rather than the single point
estimate approach.      Application of these techniques is a relatively new
development in consumer risk assessment that has mainly been used in the
refinement of short-term exposure assessments.

Provisional tolerable daily intake: this is used in the same way as an ADI.

Rapid alert: The European Commission operates an EU Rapid Alert System for
Food, which was set up in 1992. This provides the competent authorities in the
Member States of the European Union with the means of notifying cases where
high residues of pesticides have been found in imported samples. Since its
introduction this system has proved a successful method for disseminating
information between Members States allowing swift action where necessary.



                                       49
Relationship between GAP and MRLs: The MRL can be defined as the
maximum concentration of a pesticide residue (expressed as mg/kg) likely to
occur in or on food commodities and animal feeds, after the use of the pesticide
according to the GAP.

Reporting limit: the reporting limit is the lowest calibrated level employed during
analysis to detect residues. The reporting limit may vary slightly from laboratory
to laboratory depending on the equipment available and operating procedures
used.

‘None were detected above the set RL’: This term is used in the Brand Name
Annex, where no residues were found above their reporting limit.

Residue: Any pesticide found in a sample, including any specified derivatives
such as degradation and conversion products, metabolites and impurities which
are considered to be of toxicological significance. Pesticide residues are the
small amount of pesticides that can remain in the crop after harvesting or storage
and make their way into the food chain.

Risk assessment: A risk assessment is carried out when residues are found in
foods to determine whether, at the levels found, they present a concern for
consumer health or not. See section on ‘Dietary intake implications’ for more
information on risk assessments carried out in this report. Consumer risk
assessments are routinely assessed as part of the approval process for
pesticides and is based on residue trials. Approval of a pesticide is only
recommended when the consumer risk is acceptable.

Uncertainty: When used in a technical sense as in ‘analytical uncertainty of a
test result’, it has a specific meaning. It is a parameter associated with the result
of a measurement that defines the range of values that could reasonably be
attributed to the measured quantity. Like all other measurements made in
science, an analytical result is not a fixed value, but is an approximation involving
uncertainty. The specified result of a measurement is the best estimate of the
value of the measured quantity.

In practice the uncertainty on the result may arise from a number of sources such
as variation in temperature and humidity and practical limitations related to
calibration of laboratory equipment. Uncertainty can be estimated from analytical
recovery data, proficiency test data and repeated analysis of samples (including
reference materials). All laboratories that contribute data to the PRC programme
adhere to rigorous quality control guidelines and take part in various proficiency
test programmes. Results that exceed the MRL or are otherwise of significance
are subject to additional requirements that include confirmation by repeat
analysis of at least one additional test portion.

There is growing interest internationally in formal assessments of uncertainty and
it is now a requirement under certain accreditation systems such as ISO/IEC


                                        50
17025 although the methods and their application are still in a relatively early
stage of development.

Ware: ware potatoes, sometimes referred to as maincrop potatoes, are usually
harvested between August and November.

(1) At the time of purchase the sampler recorded the sample as being of UK origin. The retailer, however, provided comprehensive evidence that the particular store

therefore been recorded as of Spanish origin.

Where the brand of a sample is given in addition to the retailer's name and address, the produce involved may have been on sale in other retail
premises at the same time.

(1) At the time of purchase the sampler recorded the sample as being of UK origin. The retailer, however, provided comprehensive evidence that the particular store
only sold Conference pears from the Netherlands during the period the sample was taken. It has therefore been recorded as of Dutch origin.
