School fruit and vegetables tested for pesticide residues

The Pesticide Residues Committee (PRC) today published findings from the Department of Health’s School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme for Autumn 2009.

The third report for the academic year 2009/10 found the fruit and vegetables supplied to schools met legal standards for pesticide residues levels – and the presence of any residues would be unlikely to have any effect on those who ate the food.
