What is changing?
The EU has increased the MRLs for metaldehyde as summarised in Table 1.
Following an application to modify the MRLs for metaldehyde on broccoli, cauliflowers, chinese cabbages/pe-tsai and kales, EFSA (2023) found no consumer health risk for these MRLs, which have therefore been accepted by the European Commission.
The new MRLs apply from 27 September 2023.
