EU: Turkish peppers stopped at EU border due to pesticide residues

Europe has once again stopped a cargo of peppers from Turkey because the maximum allowable amount of pesticide residues was exceeded. Vigilant Bulgarian customs prevented large shipments of Turkish produce from reaching the consumer.

The control system RASSF stated that the detected amount of tetradifon, carbendazim and benzimidazole, all of which are banned, was 14 times higher than the permitted amount.

The peppers were seized at the Bulgarian border by custom officials and later destroyed.
