France, too many pesticides in foods

Further to the release of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) new annual report on pesticide residues in foods in the European Union, complaints have been expressed by the French association MDRGF (Mouvement pour le Droit et le Respect des Générations Futures) about France's bad results as well as a general criticism about the data's unclearness. MDRGF strongly criticize the choice to release the report, which analysed 2007 data, right on the eve of one of the biggest holiday departures in the whole year, Organic-market.info reported. Moreover, the report is quite unclear, as it is uncertain what percentage of the analyzed samples analyzed contain pesticide residues and how many do not.
