The surveillance of chlordane congener residues in various kind of food on the market including imported foods was carried out in the 1983 fiscal year. Five components of main chlordane congeners, trans- and cis-chlordane, trans- and cis-nonachlor and oxychlordane, were extracted from about 100 samples of cereals, soy beans, meat, eggs, dairy products, fish and shellfish, followed by cleaning up by Florisil column chromatography and finally, analyzed by gas chromatography with ECD. As the results, all components of five chlordane congeners were detected at levels of 1.1 to 33.4 ppb (mean : 10.0 ppb) as the total chlordanes in fish and shellfish samples, and some components of chlordane congeners were detected at levels of 0.11 to 1.28 ppb (mean : 0.65 ppb) in imported chicken samples. But chlordane congeners were not detected at all or scarcely detected in other samples.
