Pesticide Residues Committee publishes 2009 annual report

The 2009 Annual Report of the independent Pesticide Residues Committee (PRC) is published today. The report draws together the results of the UK’s programme of pesticide residues testing in food and drink for 2009.

Over 3,800 samples of both imported and home-produced food were collected from many sources including shops, markets, ports and wholesale suppliers, and tested for a wide range of different pesticides. Results are published every quarter and then summarised at the end of the year in this annual report.
