1969 EVALUATIONS OF SOME PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FOOD
Issued jointly by FAO and WHO
The content of this document is the result of the deliberations of the
Joint Meeting of the FAO Working Party of Experts and the WHO Expert
Group on Pesticide Residues, which met in Rome, 8 - 15 December 1969.

This pesticide was evaluated at the 1966 and 1967 Joint Meetings
(FAO/WHO 1967b and 1968b).*
The recommendations for tolerances were considered by the Codex
Committee on Pesticide Residues at its Fourth Session and requests
were made for clarification of the term 'cereal products' and of the
significance of 'only items to be cooked' which had formed a part of
the recommendation from the 1967 Joint Meeting (FAO/WHO 1968b).*
Examination of data on 'Cereal products' and on 'Cooking'
From a consideration of the original data, the Meeting noted that
information had been obtained on the residues likely to occur in a
very wide range of cereal products; these included flour, gluten
flour, bran, corn starch and certain prepared breakfast cereals. It
was also noted that very few of the residues in these products
exceeded the limits of the analytical methods available.
The Meeting therefore recommended as follows:
The recommendations made in 1967 should be amended as follows:
1. The words "only items to be cooked" should be deleted.
2. The term "Cereal products" should be replaced by "Flour and other
milled cereal products, breakfast cereal".
