What pesticides are lurking in your loaf?

Nearly two thirds of bread products found to contain pesticide residues
According to a new study, carried out by the Pesticide Action Network (Pan) UK and the Organic Naturally Different campaign, based on figures reported by the Government’s Defra Expert Committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF), which tested more than 2,000 bread samples between 2000-2013, the percentage of bread products containing pesticide residues has more than doubled over the last 12 years – rising from 28% in 2001 to 63% in 2013.
