Health Canada has found that glyphosate exceeds maximum residue limits in grain products about four percent of the time.
The finding is from a Canadian Food Inspection Agency document that an agency employee emailed to U.S. Right to Know, a non-profit group that campaigns for a transparent food system. The four page report is titled Safeguarding with Science: Glyphosate Testing in 2015-2016. (MS Word format)
A CFIA spokesperson confirmed that it is an agency document and the information is accurate
The document summarizes CFIA testing of 3,188 food samples for glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and the most popular herbicide in the world.
