PCDDs and PCDFs in milk from farms in Derbyshire, U.K


, : PCDDs and PCDFs in milk from farms in Derbyshire, U.K. Chemosphere 32(3): 453-460

As part of a programme to establish the background levels of PCDD/Fs in milk in the U.K., samples of cows' milk were collected from farms in Derbyshire in 1990 and 1991. The concentrations of PCDD/Fs in the samples from two farms in the Bolsover area of Derbyshire were found to be significantly elevated compared with the normal range for PCDD/Fs in milk in the U.K. Details of the findings and the actions taken as a result are given. The concentrations of PCDD/Fs in milk from those farms previously supplying milk for human consumption are now below the Maximum Tolerable Concentration of 17.5 ng TEQ/kg fat.

Cows milk samples from 12 dairy farms in Spain and 23 samples of pasteurized cows milk were analysed for PCDD/F. Farms located in rural areas without specific dioxin sources (background levels) ranged from 1.3 to 2.47 pg TEQ/g fat basis. These val...
