Fruit with chemical residue destroyed

Food safety officials say they destroyed three shipments totaling 5,700 kilos of peaches and a shipment of nectarines because the fruits showed too much fungicide residue.

The fruit came from California, said the Servicio Fitosanitario del Estado. The fungicide is propiconazole, said the agency.

The shipment arrived in Caldera over the last month, said the agency. All four shipments came from the same exporter, said the agency.
