Chemicals in food 2016: Overview of selected data collection

Pesticide residues in vegetables? Contaminants in palm oil? Traces of veterinary medicines in meat? This report provides an overview of data collected by EU Member States and analysed by EFSA in 2015 and 2016 to monitor chemicals in food and help protect consumers. It covers a cross section of activities since the first report was published in 2015, with a focus on two annual reports (pesticide residues and veterinary drug residues) and on consumer exposure to two process contaminants of high public interest: acrylamide in food; and glycidyl esters/MCPDs in vegetable oils and food.
