Nestle Withdraws Cereal Product from U.S. on Pesticide Concerns

Nov. 4, 2008
Company said U.S. currently has set no standard for this pesticide

The world's biggest food company Nestle said on Nov. 5 it was withdrawing from the U.S. a Brazil-manufactured milk cereal product that may contain traces of a pesticide not approved for the product in the U.S.

Nestle's spokeswoman said that as no standard had been set for the level of the particular pesticide in the U.S. for wheat, therefore, it believed that it may be asked to withdraw the product at some point. It was therefore taking a "preemptive action" by withdrawing the product called Nestle Farinha Lactea, she added.

She added however that the pesticide level in the product "is far below" limits in Brazil and in the EU.
