Japan detects pesticides in Australian barley imports

Japanese government suspended purchase of Australian barley after detecting two insecticide ingredients three times the legal standards for residual pesticides.

The high levels of amitraz and fipronil, used to exterminate insects, were found by Mitsubishi Trading co., which imported the grains, at the request of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

“The farm ministry learned that the two substances are banned for use on barley in Australia. It plans to investigate with the Australian government why the chemicals were used on the grain.” Asahi reported. (Source)

It’s not known whether the Japanese officials test New Zealand wine and farm produce for dangerous chemicals.
