According to the latest EFSA, European Food Safety Agency, report, more than 96% of the 84.657 samples analyzed (measuring 791 different pesticides) were found to be within the limits of the law, while 51% were totally free from quantifiable residues. The data (referring to 2016) were obtained from samples for the most part from EU countries (67%), and then from third countries (26.4%). For 6.6% of the samples it was not possible to discover the origins. Irregularities were found in 2.4% of products from EU countries, and 7.2% of products from non-European countries. These data signify that the EU system of rules makes European food safer than in the rest of the world.
