EU Results EFSA monitoring 2019

Last month, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published its annual report regarding pesticide residues in food. The report describes analysis of nearly 100,000 food samples collected across the European territory in 2019 with special focus this year on an array of products that were last highlighted in 2016, including apples, lettuce, peaches, strawberries and tomatoes.

The 2019 EU report on pesticide residues in food provides an overview of the official control activities on pesticide residues carried out in the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. It summarizes the results of both the EU‐coordinated control program (EUCP) and the national control programs (NP). The report also includes the outcome of the risk assessment from both programs.

The comprehensive analysis of the results from all reporting countries provides risk managers with a sound evidence base for designing future monitoring programs and enabling appropriate decisions on which pesticides and food products should be targeted.
