The first list concerns to this day waffles of various brands. The relevant parcels are listed in the table below. The concentrations of pesticide, its below the allowable limit.
The second one is empty for now : “at the current stage, no control, realized by the French companies on the consumer products was found in a concentration greater than the permitted limit “, informed the ministry. No product was recalled from consumers.
