PESTICIDE RESIDUES MONITORING REPORT


     THIRD QUARTER RESULTS 2002


        JULY - SEPTEMBER 2002
INTRODUCTION

Background

The Pesticide Residues Committee (PRC) oversees the Government’s
pesticide residues surveillance programme. 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 third quarter of 2002.
Samples were generally taken between July and September. 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


  Apples (first part) (Table 1)

  Introduction
  Apples are available all the year round. Apples are monitored every year due
  to their importance in the diet, particularly for children.

  Results January to June 2002
  • A total of 107 samples were tested for 100 pesticide residues in a range of
    analytical suites (see the footnote to Table 1).
  • 18 of the samples were UK origin, 87 imported and 2 were of unknown
    origin.
  • 68 out of 107 samples tested did not contain any residues from those
    sought.
  • Residues were detected in 39 samples.
  • There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses.
  • Diphenylamine (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 13 samples ranging from 0.09
    to 2.4 mg/kg. Diphenylamine is an antioxidant for use in fruit storage
    practice.
  • Thiabendazole (MRL 5 mg/kg) was found in 11 samples ranging from 0.07
    to 1 mg/kg. Thiabendazole is a post-harvest fungicide used to control
    various post-harvest apple diseases.
  • Carbendazim (MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 9 samples ranging from 0.05 to
    0.3 mg/kg. Carbendazim is a post-harvest fungicide used to control
    various post-harvest apple diseases.
  • Captan (MRL 3 mg/kg) was found in 9 samples ranging from 0.1 to
    0.4 mg/kg. Captan is a fungicide used to control various apple diseases.
  • 3 samples contained 4 residues.
  • 4 samples contained 3 residues.
  • 10 samples contained 2 residues.
  • 2 samples were labelled as organic and did not contain any residues.

  Previous survey results
  • Apples were last sampled in 2001.
     (http://www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4reportr
     ev1.pdf)

  Conclusion
  There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses observed in this
  survey. This is the first part of the survey. We await the results from the
  second half, which includes more samples from independent greengrocers.

  Carrots (first part) (Table 2)

  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


                                       6
following research into the variation in OP pesticide residue levels between
individual carrot roots. Both the frequency of detection and the residue levels
of OPs have continued to decline, reflecting the change in usage.

Results 2002
• A total of 58 samples were tested for 91 residues in a range of analytical
  suites (see the footnote to Table 2).
• 40 of the samples were UK origin, 15 imported and 3 of unknown origin.
• 45 out of 58 samples tested did not contain any residues from those
  sought.
• Residues were detected in 13 samples.
• 2 imported samples contained 2 residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this part of
  the survey.
• One sample was found to contain trifluralin (no MRL) at 0.02 mg/kg. A risk
  assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no
  concern for consumer health.
• The most commonly occurring pesticide residue was iprodione. This is
  used as a fungicide on carrot foliage to control the leaf disease Alternaria.
• 8 samples were labelled as organic, and none contained residues.

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

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 first part of the survey. The results from the second part of the survey will
be published in the Q4 report.

Celery (first part) (Table 3)

Introduction
Celery has been sampled regularly as part of the rolling programme, mainly
due to concerns over non-approved UK uses and MRL exceedances in
imported samples, in particular from Spain (the main source of imported
celery). Celery was last sampled in 2001 - there were exceedances of MRLs
for cypermethrin and diazinon in Spanish samples. The previous survey was
in 1999, and there were exceedances of MRLs for carbendazim,
methamidophos and procymidone in Spanish samples. The results from the
second part of the survey will be published in the Q4 report.

Results 2002
• A total of 35 samples of celery were tested for 95 pesticide residues in a
  range of different analytical suites (see footnote to Table 3).




                                       7
•   2 samples were of UK origin, 32 were imported and 1 was of unknown
    origin.
•   2 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
•   Residues were detected in 33 samples.
•   There was 1 MRL exceedance in this part of the survey.
•   There were no non-approved UK uses.
•   One sample from the USA was found to contain acephate at 0.1 mg/kg,
    exceeding the MRL (0.02 mg/kg). This sample also contained
    methamidophos at the MRL (0.01 mg/kg). Methamidophos is a pesticide
    in its own right, but is also a metabolite of acephate, therefore residues of
    methamidophos may arise through the use of acephate.                   A risk
    assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no
    concern for consumer health. Acephate is used in the USA to control
    Lepidoptera (caterpillars) on celery.
•   2 residues were found which have not had MRLs established yet. A
    residue of dicloran was found at 0.4 mg/kg in one sample (from the USA)
    and residues of tebuconazole were found in the range 0.06 to 0.1 mg/kg in
    3 samples (from Israel).          Risk assessments (see ‘Dietary intake
    implications’) carried out at the highest levels found showed that there was
    no concern for consumer health.
•   The most common residue found was of inorganic bromide (MRL
    300 mg/kg). This was found in 31 samples tested at levels ranging from
    6.4 to 187 mg/kg. Of these, 28 samples contained residues between 6.4
    and 16 mg/kg and only 3 samples contained residues above 20 mg/kg – at
    24, 81 and 187 mg/kg. Bromide is a naturally occurring compound in
    some crops including celery, and levels found at or below 20 mg/kg are
    considered to be naturally occurring. Levels above 20 mg/kg and below
    the MRL of 300 mg/kg are considered to arise from use of methyl bromide,
    which is used as a soil fumigant to sterilise the soil prior to planting, and
    may remain in the soil for several years.
•   1 sample contained 4 residues.
•   4 samples contained 3 residues.
•   7 samples contained 2 residues.
•   One sample labelled as organic was found to contain inorganic bromide at
    12 mg/kg. The level found was not considered to have arisen through
    methyl bromide usage, but was a 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)

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
USA that contained a residue of acephate which exceeded the MRL. A risk
assessment has shown that there is no risk to consumers. We have written to




                                       8
the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to inform them of these
findings.

Cucumber (first part) (Table 4)

Introduction
Cucumbers are sampled as part of the rolling programme. They were last
sampled in 2000. This is the first part of the survey. C ucumbers are available
all year round because they are produced in several different countries in
addition to the UK. 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 the spring and summer.

Results January to June 2002
• A total of 34 samples were tested for 96 pesticide residues.
• 20 of the samples were UK origin, with 11 imported and 3 of unknown
  origin.
• 22 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Of the 12 samples in which residues were found, 1 sample contained 4
  residues, 1 sample contained 3 residues and 3 samples contained 2
  residues.
• There were no MRL exceedances or UK non-approved uses.
• Propamocarb (no MRL) was the most common residue detected.
  Residues were found in 6 samples at levels between 0.1 and 0.7 mg/kg. It
  is used as a fungicide to treat Phytophthora (known as “damping off”). A
  risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) was carried out for the
  highest level found of 0.7 mg/kg and showed that there was no concern for
  consumer health.
• Residues of two other pesticides, which have not yet had MRLs assigned
  to them, were found. Oxadixyl was found in 2 samples at 0.06 and 0.09
  mg/kg. Prothiofos was found in one sample at 0.03 mg/kg. The sample
  containing prothiofos was of unknown origin, although as it was purchased
  in January, it would have been imported. Prothiofos has not been
  supported for Annex 1 inclusion, therefore all Members States must
  withdraw it from use by 25 July 2003. Risk assessments (see ‘Dietary
  intake implications’) were carried and showed that there was no concern
  for consumer health.
• One sample labelled as organic did not contain any residues.

Previous survey results
• Cucumbers were last sampled in 2000.
(http://www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2000/q4rep-00.pdf).

Conclusion
There were no MRL exceedances or non-approved UK uses in this first part of
the survey. The results from the second part of the survey will be published in
the Q4 report.

Dried fruit (Table 5)

Introduction
Dried fruit was last sampled in 1996. This survey has been carried out as part
of the rolling programme. The last survey was broader-based and covered a
whole range of dried fruits such as apricots and figs. This survey specifically
targeted the most commonly eaten dried fruit; currants, raisins and sultanas
(i.e. all of grape origin).

Results 2002
• A total of 72 samples were tested for 43 pesticide residues.
• There were 22 samples of currants (13 imported, 9 unknown origin), 25
  samples of raisins (22 imported, 3 unknown origin), and 25 samples of
  sultanas (15 imported, 10 unknown origin).
• 30 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 42 of the samples. Residues of bromopropylate,
  carbendazim, ETU, inorganic bromide, iprodione, lambda-cyhalothrin,
  malathion, metalaxyl, procymidone and triadimenol were found. Risk
  assessments for inorganic bromide (18 mg/kg), malathion (0.07 mg/kg),
  carbendazim (2.2 mg/kg), ETU (0.02 mg/kg), iprodione (0.8 mg/kg),
  lambda-cyhalothrin (0.05 mg/kg), triadimenol (0.2 mg/kg), bromopropylate
  (0.1 mg/kg), metalaxyl (0.05 mg/kg) and procymidone (1 mg/kg) have been
  carried out (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) and show that there is no
  concern for consumer health.
• The MRLs are established for grapes, and the risk assessments were
  carried out on that basis. Intake data for dried fruit were available, so the
  highest residues found were compared to the intake figures.                 A
  concentration factor of 7 was applied to calculate the risk assessment –
  this was an approximation on the information available.
• The highest level of inorganic bromide found was 18 mg/kg. These
  residues are considered to be natural levels and not occurring from the
  use of methyl bromide.
• 7 samples contained 4 residues.
• 7 samples contained 3 residues.
• 10 samples contained 2 residues.
• 6 samples were labelled as organic. Two of these samples were from
  Turkey (1 sultana and 1 raisin sample), and both were found to contain
  residues of procymidone at 0.01 mg/kg.

Previous survey results
• Dried fruit (apricots, currants, dates, figs, mixed fruit, prunes, raisins and
   sultanas) were last sampled in 1996.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr96.pdf)

Conclusion
The analytical suite for this survey was similar to that used for grapes. The
residues found were those expected. The ETU residue will have resulted
from the use of dithiocarbamates on the grapes. We have written to the UK
Register of Organic Food Standards (UKROFS) to inform them of the organic



                                      10
samples of sultanas and raisins from Turkey which contained residues of
procymidone.

Herbs (Table 6)

Introduction

Herbs were last sampled in 1995. This survey has therefore been carried out
as part of the rolling programme. The last survey was broader and covered a
wider range of herbs, although the total number sampled was less than in this
survey. This survey has targeted the more commonly eaten herbs; basil,
coriander and parsley. All the samples were fresh.

Results 2002
• A total of 51 samples were tested for up to 26 pesticide residues
• There were 8 samples of basil (1 UK and 7 imported), 15 samples of
  coriander (3 UK and 12 imported) and 28 samples of parsley (9 UK, 15
  imported and 4 of unknown origin)
• 24 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were detected in 27 samples. Residues of azoxystrobin,
  cypermethrin, dimethoate, dithiocarbamates, imidacloprid, inorganic
  bromide, iprodione, propamocarb, pirimicarb, quintozene and tolclofos-
  methyl were found.
• There was one MRL exceedance in this part of the survey.
• The MRL for dithiocarbamates was exceeded in one sample of UK parsley
  (MRL is 5 mg/kg).
• Risk assessments for dithiocarbamates (9.3 mg/kg), inorganic bromide
  (421 mg/kg), imidacloprid (1.4 mg/kg), dimethoate (0.3 mg/kg), quintozene
  (2.5 mg/kg), tolclofos-methyl (0.05 mg/kg) and propamocarb (0.2 mg/kg)
  showed that there was no concern for consumer health (see ‘Dietary
  intake implications’).
• The imported parsley sample (from France) containing dimethoate (0.3
  mg/kg) (no MRL) was also analysed for omethoate, which is a metabolite
  of dimethoate. A level of 0.1 mg/kg was detected. The risk assessment
  was based on the combination of these residues.
• The same sample also contained dithiocarbamates (0.3 mg/kg), inorganic
  bromide (160 mg/kg), quintozene (1.9 mg/kg) and tolclofos-methyl (0.05
  mg/kg)
• 4 basil samples and 3 parsley samples contained 2 residues
• 1 parsley sample contained 4 residues

Previous survey results
• Herbs were last sampled in 1995.
• 17 UK and 7 imported samples were tested.
• Types of herb surveyed were chives, coriander, dill, mint, oregano,
   parsley, rosemary, and thyme.
• Residues were detected in 16 of 24 samples tested.
• One UK sample of mint contained a residue of deltamethrin at 1.9 mg/kg,
   which exceeded the MRL (0.05 mg/kg).


                                     11
•   The same sample contained a residue of heptenophos at 14 mg/kg,
    indicating non-approved UK use.
•   A risk assessment carried out on this result showed that if this level of
    residues was present in all herbs consumed over a high-level consumer’s
    lifetime, the ADI could be exceeded. However, since herbs are unlikely to
    form a substantial part of the diet throughout the entire lifetime, the
    presence of residues at this level does not pose a serious risk to
    consumers.

Conclusion
There was 1 MRL exceedance in this survey.

Melon (first part) (Table 7)

Introduction
This survey on melons included samples of galia, honeydew, cantaloupe and
charentais varieties. The whole fruit, including the skin, was analysed, as the
MRLs for melon are based on residues in the whole fruit.

Results 2002
• A total of 33 samples of melons were tested for 117 pesticide residues.
• All of the samples were imported.
• 7 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Of the 26 samples that contained residues, 2 samples contained 3
  residues and 7 samples contained 2 residues.
• There were 3 samples containing residues that exceeded the MRL.
• One galia melon sample from Venezuela was found to contain diazinon at
  0.08 mg/kg (MRL 0.02 mg/kg). A risk assessment showed that there was
  no concern for consumer health.
• 2 samples of honeydew melons from Brazil were found to contain 2 MRL
  exceedances: acephate at 0.1 mg/kg in both samples (MRL 0.02 mg/kg);
  methamidophos at 0.02 mg/kg and 0.03 mg/kg (MRL 0.01 mg/kg). These
  samples were tested a month apart and are therefore unlikely to originate
  from the same batch of produce. A risk assessment showed that there
  was no concern for consumer health.
• No organic samples were tested.

Previous survey results
• Melon were last sampled in 1999.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/wppr99/report-99.htm)

Conclusion
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. We have written to the authorities in Brazil and
Venezuela to inform them of these findings. This is the first part of the survey,
and we await the second part of the survey to determine whether the
incidence of acephate and methamidophos residues is more widespread.


                                       12
Spinach (first part) (Table 8)

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 and
canned spinach were purchased.

Results 2002
• A total of 35 samples were tested for 98 pesticide residues.
• 5 samples were UK origin, 22 were imported and 8 were of unknown
  origin.
• 23 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Of the 12 samples which contained residues, 8 were from Spain and 4
  were of unknown origin.
• No multiple residues were found.
• There were 3 samples (all of Spanish origin) found to contain residues
  which exceeded the MRL.
• One sample contained azoxystrobin at 1.3 mg/kg (MRL 0.05 mg/kg).
• One sample contained cypermethrin at 1.4 mg/kg (MRL 0.5 mg/kg).
• Risk assessments for these residues (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  showed that there were no concerns for consumer health.
• One sample contained methomyl at 3.2 mg/kg (MRL 2 mg/kg). A risk
  assessment showed (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) that the ARfD was
  exceeded by 1.5 and 2.4 times for adults and toddlers respectively.
  Although the safety margins built into the ARfD would have been
  significantly eroded, adverse health effects would have been unlikely to
  result from this exceedance. It is possible that symptoms such as
  increased salivation, an upset stomach or a mild headache could occur,
  but that if these effects occurred, they would be expected to be short-lived
  (lasting no longer than 6 hours).
• Methomyl is a carbamate compound, used to control caterpillars. It is not
  known to be persistent on the crop after application.
• 2 samples were 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)

Conclusion
This is the first part of the survey and revealed MRL exceedances in 3
samples of fresh spinach of Spanish origin. The Spanish authorities have
been informed of these findings. They have confirmed that azoxystrobin is not
approved in Spain, and have written to the approval holder. Cypermethrin
and methomyl are both approved for use in Spain. We will determine the
origin of the spinach, and inform the Spanish so that they can write to their
regional authorities. Risk assessments have shown that the residues of
azoxystrobin and cypermethrin were not of concern for consumer health.
However, the residue of methomyl exceeded the ARfD for both adults and



                                     13
toddlers. Although the desirable safety margins would have been significantly
eroded, only short-term, mild health effects may have arisen.

The second half of this survey will be published in the Q4 report. We have
requested early notification of any methomyl results (there are some Spanish
samples included) to determine whether this situation is still occurring.



  ANIMAL PRODUCT SURVEYS

Cheese imported (Table 9)

Introduction
Due to the findings in 2001 of low levels of gamma-HCH (lindane) in 4
samples of whole milk, the PRC decided to prioritise the surveillance
programme to include mature cheese in 2002 to see whether any of the milk
containing gamma-HCH had been used in the production of cheese. As the
gamma-HCH residues were found in samples of milk early during last year,
mature cheese was targeted, as less mature cheeses would have been made
from milk produced at a later date. The PRC also considered that it was
important to compare cheese of UK origin with imported cheese. The UK
cheese results were reported in the Q2 2002 report. This report gives the
results for imported mature cheese.

Results 2002
• A total of 72 samples of imported cheese were tested for 10 pesticide
  residues in this targeted survey.
• 71 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• One sample from Canada was found to contain residues of gamma-HCH
  (lindane) at 0.01 mg/kg (MRL 0.2 mg/kg). A risk assessment was carried
  out (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) and showed that there was no
  concern for consumer health.
• One sample was labelled as organic and did not contain any residues.

Previous survey results
• Cheese was last sampled in 1997.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/early_reports/wppr97a.pdf).
• UK cheese only was last sampled in Q2 2002.
   (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep2002.pdf)

Conclusion
These results revealed a low level of gamma-HCH (lindane), well below the
MRL, in one sample of mature Canadian cheese at 0.01 mg/kg. A risk
assessment showed that this level was not of concern for consumer health.




                                     14
Cow’s milk (third part) (Table 10)

Introduction
Whole 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, with the exception of gamma-
HCH (lindane). As chlormequat is regularly found in cereal products, which
may be used for feed, and a reliable method of detection has been developed,
it has been sought in cow’s milk for the last couple of years, and has not been
found.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/2002prog.htm).

Results July to September 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.
• Ten of the samples were labelled as organic.

Previous results
Cow’s milk was last sampled in April to June 2002.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep2002.pdf)

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



  CEREAL PRODUCT SURVEYS

Bread (ordinary) (first part) (Table 11)

Introduction
Bread is monitored every year due to its importance as a staple component of
a balanced diet in the UK. This survey includes samples of ordinary bread,
such as brown, white, multigrain and wholemeal. Savoury breads, such as
cheese and garlic bread, were also sampled during 2002 and the results are
reported below.

Results April to May 2002
• A total of 73 samples of brown, white and other types (such as wholemeal)
  of ordinary bread were tested for 23 pesticide residues.
• There were 6 UK brown, 21 UK other and 44 UK white samples tested,
  and 1 unknown origin other and 1 unknown origin white sample tested.
• 18 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 55 samples.
• There were no MRL exceedances.



                                      15
•   Three pesticide residues were found: chlormequat, glyphosate and
    pirimiphos-methyl.
•   Chlormequat (no MRL) was found in 53 samples ranging from 0.05 to
    0.2 mg/kg. A risk assessment carried out at the highest level found has
    shown that there is no concern for consumer health.
•   Glyphosate (no MRL) was found in 12 samples ranging from 0.1 to
    0.2 mg/kg. A risk assessment carried out at the highest level found has
    shown that there is no concern for consumer health.
•   Pirimiphos-methyl (CAC MRL 0.5 mg/kg) was found in 6 samples ranging
    from 0.06 to 0.2 mg/kg. Chlormequat was also present in these samples.
•   Two residues were found in 16 samples.
•   Four samples were labelled as organic and none contained any residues.

Previous results
Ordinary bread was last sampled in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4rep-01rev1.pdf).

Conclusion
No MRLs were exceeded in this survey. Residues of chlormequat, glyphosate
and pirimiphos-methyl were found. These 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) first part (Table 12)

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 breads. Ordinary bread, i.e. brown, white and other
types have also been surveyed during 2002 and the results are reported
above.

Results April to July 2002
• A total of 35 samples of savoury breads were tested for 23 pesticide
  residues.
• There were 31 samples of UK origin and 4 of unknown origin.
• 16 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 19 samples.
• Three pesticide residues were found: chlormequat, glyphosate and
  pirimiphos-methyl.
• Chlormequat (no MRL) was found in 18 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) has shown that there is no concern for
  consumer health.
• Glyphosate (no MRL) was found in 2 samples at 0.1 and 0.2 mg/kg. A risk
  assessment carried out at the highest level found showed that there was
  no concern for consumer health.




                                    16
•   Pirimiphos-methyl (no MRL) was found in 5 samples ranging from 0.05 to
    0.1 mg/kg. Chlormequat was also present in these samples. These
    residues are below the CAC MRL for ordinary bread of 0.5 mg/kg, and
    there was no concern for consumer health.
•   2 residues were found in 6 samples.
•   No organic samples were tested.

Previous results
Savoury bread was last sampled in 2001.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/fourthq2001rev1/q4rep-01rev1.pdf).

Conclusions
Residues of chlormequat, glyphosate and pirimiphos-methyl were found.
These 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 (first part) (Table 13)

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

Results April 2002
• A total of 36 samples were tested for 33 pesticide residues.
• 24 white UK origin samples, and 12 wholemeal UK samples were tested.
• 9 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 27 of the samples.
• No MRLs were exceeded.
• Three pesticide residues were found: chlormequat, glyphosate and
  pirimiphos-methyl.
• Chlormequat (CAC MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 27 samples ranging from
  0.05 to 0.3 mg/kg.
• Pirimiphos-methyl (CAC MRL 2 mg/kg) was found in 6 samples ranging
  from 0.06 to 0.3 mg/kg. All these samples also contained chlormequat.
• Glyphosate (CAC MRL 0.5 mg/kg) was found in 2 samples at 0.2 and
  0.4 mg/kg. Both samples also contained chlormequat.
• 8 samples contained 2 residues.
• 5 samples were labelled as organic and none contained any residues.

Previous results
• Flour was last sampled in 1995.
• This was a targeted survey to check for 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.


                                    17
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 (first part) (Table 14)

Introduction
This survey of cereal based infant food included samples of 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
every individual pesticide residue in baby food came into force on 1 July 2002.
However, as this is the first part of the survey, the samples were collected
before this date.

Results January to March 2002
• A total of 71 samples were tested for 39 pesticide residues.
• 65 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• 24 samples were of UK origin, 18 were imported and 29 were of unknown
  origin.
• Residues were found in 6 samples.
• No multiple residues were found.
• Hydrogen phosphide, also known as phosphine, (no MRL) was found in 4
  samples ranging from 0.001 to 0.006 mg/kg. It is used as a fumigant on
  cereals in store. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’)
  carried out at the highest level found showed that there was no concern for
  infant health. Hydrogen phosphide is produced by a range of metal
  phosphides, including aluminium, magnesium and zinc phosphide, all of
  which are widely used as post-harvest fumigants around the world. It is
  not unexpected and has been found in some samples of cereal bars and
  cereal products in previous surveys;
  (www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/thirdq2001/q3report.pdf).
• Pirimiphos-methyl (no MRL) was found in 2 samples at 0.01 mg/kg. A risk
  assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) showed that there was no
  concern for infant health.
• 24 samples were labelled as organic. One of these contained hydrogen
  phosphide at 0.006 mg/kg.

Previous results
Infant food – cereal based was last sampled in 1999.
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/WPPR/wppr99/report-99.htm).

Conclusion
This is 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. The sample


                                      18
labelled as organic but found to contain hydrogen phosphide has been
reported to the UK Register of Organic Food Standards (UKROFS).
Analytical difficulties were reported for several samples and consequently the
reporting of these results has been delayed to the quarter 4 report. Infant
producers have been aiming to reduce pesticide residues in their products for
some time, in the run up to the implementation of the MRLs in July 2002.



 MISCELLANEOUS SURVEYS


Blackcurrant juice (Table 15)

Introduction
Both ‘ready-to-drink’ blackcurrant drinks and blackcurrant cordials requiring
dilution were tested in this survey. As these products usually have a long
shelf life, samples were taken only between June and September as they
were believed to be representative of the whole year. The percentage of
blackcurrant in the drinks tested varied from around 10% to 50%.

Results June to September 2002
• A total of 72 samples were tested for 26 pesticide residues.
• 29 samples of ‘concentrate’ juice were of UK origin, 37 were of unknown
  origin and 6 samples of ‘ready to drink’ juice were of unknown origin.
• None of the samples tested contained any residues from those sought.
• One sample was labelled as organic.

Previous results
• Blackcurrant based drinks were sampled in 1994.
• 28 samples were tested for 34 pesticide residues.
• 27 samples did not contain any residues.
• 1 sample of unknown origin was found to contain a residue of bupirimate
   at 0.04 mg/kg.

Conclusion
This survey shows that none of the samples contained any residues from
those sought, including the sample labelled as organic.

Chicken nuggets/breaded chicken (Table 16)

Introduction
Chicken nuggets have been included in the programme for the first time in
2002. Chicken and other chicken products have been sampled in previous
years. However, due to the increasing popularity of chicken nuggets and
breaded chicken as a significant component of many children’s diets, it has
been included in the programme.

Results May to September 2002
• A total of 72 samples were tested for 30 pesticide residues.


                                     19
•   61 samples were UK manufactured (but not necessarily made from UK
    chicken), 2 imported and 9 of unknown manufacture.
•   71 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
•   One sample contained a residue of chlormequat at 0.07 mg/kg, which is a
    common pesticide used in cereals and is found in cereal-derived products.
•   A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) has shown that there
    is no concern for consumer health.
•   No organic samples were tested.

Previous results
This is the first time that chicken nuggets have been sampled.

Conclusion
One sample contained a residue of chlormequat. The residue is likely to have
been derived from the breadcrumb coating.

Chips, fast food (Table 17)

Introduction
This is the first time that fast food chips (i.e. purchased from fish and chip
outlets) have been sampled. This is to reflect that fact that the catering
market has increased significantly over the past few years, and more people
now eat take-aways, or eat out on a more regular basis.

Results June to September 2002
• A total of 48 samples of UK manufactured samples were tested for 23
  pesticide residues.
• 25 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 23 samples.
• Aldicarb was found in 2 samples at 0.1 mg/kg.
• Chlorpropham was found in 16 samples ranging from 0.1 to 1.1 mg/kg.
• Maleic hydrazide was found in 10 samples ranging from 7 to 26 mg/kg.
• Tecnazene was found in 2 samples at 0.09 and 0.2 mg/kg. Tecnazene
  approvals were withdrawn in January 2002. Some stored potatoes treated
  prior to this date may have been sampled in June.
• Risk assessments were carried out (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) and
  showed that there were no concerns for consumer health.
• 2 residues were found in 7 samples.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic and it was not possible to
  determine whether any of the potato samples were produced organically or
  cooked in organic oil.

Previous results
This is the first time that fast food chips have been surveyed, although
potatoes are a staple commodity and as such are sampled every year. The
latest results can be found at:
(www.pesticides.gov.uk/committees/PRC/secondq2002/Q2rep2002.pdf).




                                      20
Conclusion
The residue profile of the cooked fast food chips is comparable to that of raw
potatoes that have been sampled previously. Those samples purchased in
June, and some in July, are the most likely to have been prepared from stored
potatoes. Post-harvest treatment agents, such as sprout suppressants and
fungicides, are commonly applied to potatoes to protect them during the
storage period. New season potatoes, which would have been chipped in
July and August, and would not have been stored for any length of time,
showed no residues arising from the use of storage treatment agents. The
difference in the residues profiles for these two periods of time within this
survey is noticeably different. None of the residues found were of concern for
consumer health.

Fish (fast food) (Table 18)

Introduction
This is the first time that fast food fish (i.e. purchased from fish and chip
outlets) have been sampled. This is to reflect that fact that the catering
market has increased significantly over the past few years, and more people
now eat take-aways or eat out on a more regular basis. Samples of battered
cod, plaice and haddock were amongst those sampled.

Results June to September 2002
• A total of 48 samples of UK manufactured samples were tested for 29
  pesticide residues.
• None of the samples tested contained any residues from those sought.
• None of the samples were labelled as organic and it was not possible to
  determine whether any of the samples were organic, due to the unknown
  source of the fish, batter or oil.

Previous results
This is the first time that fast food fish (battered and cooked) has been
sampled, although (raw) white fish has been sampled previously.

Conclusion
None of the samples of fast food fish contained residues from those sought.

Popcorn (first part) (Table 19)

Introduction
This is the first time that popcorn has been sampled. It is a popular snack
amongst children in particular. Popcorn (pre-popped) and corn (ready for
popping) was purchased. All samples of corn were cooked to make ‘popcorn’
before they were analysed.

Results April to May 2002
• A total of 13 samples of popcorn, 7 UK manufactured and 6 of unknown
  origin, were tested for 21 pesticide residues in a range of analytical suites
  (see footnote to Table 19).
• 10 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.


                                      21
•   3 samples contained residues of pirimiphos-methyl at levels between 0.3
    and 0.5 mg/kg. A risk assessment (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) has
    shown that there is no concern for consumer health.
•   There were no multiple residues.
•   The residues found were those expected in cereal-based products.
•   Three samples were labelled as organic, and none contained any
    residues.
•   Where popcorn samples were sugar-coated or sweetened, it was not
    possible to test for glyphosate due to analytical difficulties caused by the
    presence of the added sweeteners.

Previous results
There are no previous results.

Conclusion
Pirimiphos-methyl was found at low levels in 3 samples of popcorn. The
results from the second part of the survey will be published in the Q4 report.

Polenta (first part) (Table 19)

Introduction
This is the first time that polenta has been sampled. Polenta is cornmeal and
has increased in popularity as an alternative to pasta, rice and potatoes. All
the samples were analysed ‘as sold’, i.e. as ‘ready made’, or ‘ready-to-eat’
polenta.

Results April to June 2002
• A total of 23 samples of polenta were tested for 21 pesticide residues in a
  range of analytical suites (see footnote to Table 19).
• 1 UK manufactured sample, 15 imported and 7 unknown samples were
  tested.
• There were no multiple residues.
• 16 samples did not contain any residues from those sought.
• Residues were found in 7 samples.
• Glyphosate was found in 6 samples, all at 0.1 mg/kg.
• Hydrogen phosphide was found in 1 sample at 0.005 mg/kg.
• Risk assessments (see ‘Dietary intake implications’) have shown that there
  is no concern for consumer health.
• The residues profile was similar to that found in other cereal products.
• No organic samples were tested.

Previous results
There are no previous results.

Conclusion
Glyphosate and hydrogen phosphide were found in 7 samples in this first part
of the survey. The results from the second part of the survey will be published
in the Q4 report.

 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 existence.

Most concerns relating to consumer intake are for short-term (acute) exposure
based on the Acute Reference Dose (ARfD) rather than long-term (chronic)
exposure, that is based on the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI). Short-term risk
assessments are a relatively new scientific development and therefore for
pesticides where the MRLs were set several years ago, short-term risk
assessments would not have been considered. Therefore for some pesticides
that have ‘old’ MRLs, it cannot be assumed that residues below the MRL will
necessarily result in acceptable intakes within the ARfD. Therefore, it is
necessary to carry out risk assessments selectively where such concerns
arise. Expert judgement is used to determine when a risk assessment is
necessary. However, some of the triggers used to determine this necessity
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)
•       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 (which allows for unit
        to unit differences) 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 simple calculation on an individual product
basis.

It is only 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 below the MRL for the raw commodity, taking into
account its concentration in the processed product, if information on the
composition of the product is known/given. However, this simplistic ‘mass


                                           23
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 physico-chemical properties of the
compound. In these cases a processing factor is applied to the MRL in order
to back-calculate the estimated residue in the raw commodity, which can then
be directly compared with the MRL. Because various assumptions are made,
the calculations are only estimates, but they can indicate if gross
exceedances 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
an intake at or above ca 10% of the ADI/ARfD, 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 in, for example, 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 food composition information. Dietary 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 the worst-case scenario. An example of this is iprodione in cereal
snack bars. The most likely origin of this residue is from the fruit rather than
from the cereals. Assuming the cereal bar contained raisins, a risk
assessment based on total grape consumption (which would include raisin
consumption) would be performed.

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 but have not been independently peer reviewed,
and therefore should be regarded as provisional.


                                      24
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, these 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 registrations 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 residue levels.       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 (which 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.

** Consumption data for cheese were not available therefore milk data were used.
*** Variability factor was not required as survey was on processed chips.
**** Consumption data have been based on the assumption that an infant might consume 2x250g jars of the same product from the same batch in a single day.
Since these are ready prepared products, it is not appropriate to use a variability factor.
***** Dimethoate residue = 0.3 mg/kg dimethoate, omethoate residue = 0.1 mg/kg. Overall residue expressed as dimethoate = 0.3 + (8 x0.1) = 1.1 mg/kg. This is
because omethoate is 8 times more toxic than dimethoate; the omethoate residue is therefore multiplied by 8, added to the dimethoate residue and the sum
compared to the ARfD for dimethoate.
****** Consumption data for chicken nuggets were not available, therefore poultry meat data were used.

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 MRL. Organic products are denoted by ? in the brand name
annex.

For non-approved uses, MRL exceedances and where 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.


                                        30
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.

GLOSSARY OF COMMONLY USED TERMS OR ABBREVIATIONS

Acaricide: a type of insecticide used specifically to control mites.

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].

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. These
are the conditions of use that result in 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’.

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.




                                         33
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 Alimentarius Commission (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.




                                        34
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, and quantitatively measure, the pesticide. These MRLs are not
based on Good Agricultural Practice (GAP).

MRL exceedances: when a residue is found at a level higher than the value set
for the MRL.

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 that do not
have an MRL).

Metabolite: a degradation product resulting from a pesticide following
metabolism.

NEDI: National estimate of dietary intake

NESTI: National estimate of short-term intake

No observed adverse effect level (NOAEL): 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 the butter comes in bulk



                                        35
from New Zealand, although it 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, some of which may come from different
sources/origins. 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




                                        36
introduction this system has proved a successful method for disseminating
information between Members States allowing swift action where necessary.

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
the analysis to detect residues. The reporting limit may vary slightly from
laboratory to laboratory depending on the equipment available and operating
procedures and conditions 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 amounts 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 are 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
associated with the measured quantity. Like all other measurements made in
science, an analytical result is not a fixed value, but is an estimate involving
some degree of 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 variations in temperature and humidity and the practical limitations
related to calibration of laboratory equipment. Uncertainty can be estimated from
analytical recovery data, proficiency test data and replicated analyses of samples
(including certified 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. Residues that exceed the MRL, or are




                                        37
otherwise of significance, are subject to additional requirements that include
confirmation of the result 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
17025, although the methods of estimating uncertainty, and their application, are
still not harmonised.

Ware: ware potatoes, sometimes referred to as maincrop potatoes, are usually
harvested between August and November, and stored for sale from November to
June of the following year.
