The Sixtieth report of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives evaluates the safety of residues of veterinary drugs in food and recommends maximum levels for such residues in food. The first part contains general considerations, including the agreement to use the IPCS Conceptual Framework for Evaluating a Mode of Action for Chemical Carcinogenesis, quality of data, marker residues, and the Joint WHO/FAO Project to Update the Principles and Methods for the Risk Assessment of Chemicals in Food. Summaries of the Committee's evaluation of toxicological and residue data include two antimicrobial agents (neomycin and flumequine), an antiprotozoal agent (imidocarb), three insecticides (deltametrin, dicyclanil, and trichlorfon), and one production aid (carbadox). Annexed to the report is a summary of the Committee's recommendations on these drugs, including Acceptable Daily Intakes and Maximum Residue Limits. The Committee recommended the withdrawal of the previous MRLs for flumequine and carbadox. Corrigenda for the WHO Technical Report Series 911: Evaluation of certain veterinary drug residues in food, 2002, are also included.
