High Residue Foods

Where residue levels of chlorpyrifos-methyl exceeded allowable limits or were not legally allowed to have residues. Details.

[No high residue foods were specifically identified]

No detection does not necessarily mean there are no residues of concern. A relatively small sample of food products is tested and not all organophosphate pesticides are tested for.
Moreover, current U.S. pesticide tolerance levels are not protective against neurodevelopmental harm in children, so detections at or below tolerance levels do not indicate no harm.
