Oilseeds food chain operators are coordinated through a food safety survey plan, in order to get a realistic picture of the contamination in oilseed products (seeds, oilseed meal, and vegetable oil). Concerned crops are those cultivated or processed in France: rapeseed, sunflower and soybean. Grain storage companies, feeding industries and oil industries participate voluntarily, and send their self-data that are pooled in a database. The food safety of oilseeds survey plan allows to identify which are main concerns, for instance post-harvest insecticide residues from cross contamination during storage. Results of this monitoring plan were transmitted to the French government and the European Commission in cases of revisions of regulatory thresholds.
Key words: oilseeds / vegetable oil / survey plan / contaminants / pesticide residues
