|Pesticide Plan.. |
Find out which pesticides may have been used on your food. Ask your supplier whether they know.
Check whether any of the pesticides used are on the EU banned list.
In particular, check whether potatoes were treated with Aldicarb - a particularly toxic chemical to both animals and environment, that has been banned but is allowed for "essential use" on potatoes. It is not essential.
Determine the possible health hazards or environmental impacts of the pesticides from PAN Database
