Pesticide penthiopyrad in or on caneberries and bushberries (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080)
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Penthiopyrad (PMRL2019-04). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 5 and 6
The objective of the notified document PMRL2019-04 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for penthiopyrad that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
10 Caneberries (crop subgroup 13-07A)
6.02 Bushberries (crop subgroup 13-07B)
1 ppm = parts per million
2 Lowbush blueberries and lingonberries belong to Bushberries (crop subgroup 13-07B). The MRL of 6.0 ppm is proposed to replace the currently established MRLs of 3.0 ppm for lowbush blueberries and lingonberries, and establish new MRLs for the remaining food commodities in the crop subgroup. MRLs are proposed for each commodity included in the listed crop groupings in accordance with the Residue Chemistry Crop Groups webpage (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/consumer-product-safety/pesticides-pest-management/public/protecting-your-health-environment/pesticides-food/residue-chemistry-crop-groups.html) in the Pesticides and Pest Management section of Health Canada's website.
