PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FOOD - 1983
Sponsored jointly by FAO and WHO
Data and recommendations of the joint meeting
of the FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues
in Food and the Environment and the
WHO Expert Group on Pesticide Residues
Geneva, 5 - 14 December 1983
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
The Meeting reviewed the data on residues in carcase meat of
sheep in 19811 and concluded that an estimated maximum residue level
of 0.1 mg/kg was more appropriate than the figure of 0.2 mg/kg
previously estimated. After a re-examination of residue data on
cucumbers, the Meeting re-affirmed the estimate of 0.5 mg/kg as a
maximum residue limit.
