Consultation on tolfenpyrad, Proposed Maximum Residue Limit PMRL2023-40

Current status: Open

Opened on 15 August 2023 and will close for consultation on 29 October 2023

Health Canada is consulting the public and seeking your feedback on proposed maximum residue limit (MRL) increases for tolfenpyrad on imported arugula, garden cress and upland cress; MRL decreases for tolfenpyrad on imported citrus oil and citrus fruits; and new MRLs on other various imported food commodities. An MRL is the highest amount of a specific pesticide residue allowed on a particular food commodity when a pesticide is used according to label directions. These new and revised MRLs are being requested in Canada to align with the United States of America. This is so these various food commodities, or any processed foods derived from these food commodities, can be imported and sold in Canada.
