2001 February: Redcliffe (Qld). Pesticide detected: Bifenthrin.

February 2001: Bifenthrin (0.125 mg/kg) was found in oysters from Redcliffe waterways (Keys and Mortimer, 2001), at well above Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) food standards code for maximum residue levels (0.05 mg/kg). The source of this contamination is not known, but it is likely to be as a result of runoff from nearby canal estate building sites.
