  • Published 2012

Abstract

On the occasion of quality controls in food business and during official food surveillance, didecyldimethylammonium chloride (DDAC) residues in excess of the currently applicable maximum residue level (MRL) of 0.01 mg/kg were detected in food. The first opinion on DDAC residues, which was issued by the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) on 29 June 2012 (BfR opinion No 024/2012, available in German language only) was based on only few residue data. Meanwhile the BfR has been provided with many additional data. Based on these, the BfR has updated its assessment whether the detected residues pose a health risk for consumers.
