节日期间选购食品的消费者需要当心了,据北京市工商局今日通报,有17种问题食品全市停售,其中包括7种含有违禁农药的茶叶(详情请登录工商局网站查询)。

  问题茶叶品种涉及乌龙茶、铁观音、普洱、茉莉花茶,分别从前门华都百货、购乐多超市、迪亚天天四路通店发现。停售原因主要是茶叶含有违禁农药残留“三氯杀螨醇”。据了解,此类农药不易降解,容易残留蓄积,饮用三氯杀螨醇超标的茶叶,会影响身体健康。据专家介绍,我国禁止“三氯杀螨醇”用于茶叶生产,农残超标主要是茶树鲜叶在生长过程中需治理各种病虫害,而使用农药不当或施用农药后安全间隔期不够就进行采茶,就会造成茶叶产品农药残留量超标。

  本次停售的茶叶中还有部分发现含有稀土元素。专家表示,稀土作为植物的生长、生理调节剂,对茶叶种植具有增产、改善品质等特点,但是不合理地使用稀土,会造成茶叶中残留量超标,对人体健康造成危害。

  除了发现茶叶不合格,北京祥聚源食品有限公司生产的香糕还发现甜蜜素超标。市工商局提醒市民:凡已购买不合格食品的消费者,可凭购物小票和食品外包装向销售单位要求退货。 (记者杨滨)

北京市工商局发现市面上7种茶叶,含有违禁农药“三氯杀螨醇”及“稀土”元素,民众食用后恐有碍健康,甚至影响胎儿发育。当局表示现已要求相关单位全面停售。

中通社引述北京工商局指,经检验后,市面17种食品须全面停售,其中包括7种含有违禁农药“三氯杀螨醇”及“稀土”元素的茶叶。报道指,7种茶叶分别从市面多间超级市场发现,茶叶品种包括乌龙茶、铁观音、普洱及茉莉花茶。

据悉,“三氯杀螨醇”可用作杀虫剂,但由于这种农药不易分解,加上使用不当或安全分隔时间不足,容易造成农药残留,人类食用后可能影响胎儿发育,内地法律禁止茶叶生产中使用三氯杀螨醇。另外,专家指稀土能作为植物生长调节剂,有助增加产量和改善品质,但使用不当,亦会造成稀土残留,过量摄取或会抑制体内凝血因子的活性。

除了发现茶叶不合格,北京祥聚源食品有限公司生产的香糕还发现甜蜜素超标。市工商局提醒市民:凡已购买不合格食品的消费者,可凭购物小票和食品外包装向销售单位要求退货。

北京市工商局公布的食品下架7种查出了违禁农药的茶叶中,其中不少来自福建安溪。

“泡出来的都是茶叶梗和碎叶子。”网购茶叶的宋小姐告诉记者,卖这款茶叶礼盒的网店店主说自己就是茶农,所以价格能比市面上同质量的铁观音便宜一半。当时她信以为真,直到拿到茶叶礼盒时才发现被骗了。

像宋小姐这种情况并不在少数。同样在网店买到劣质茶叶的李先生告诉记者,由于网店没有对礼盒中的茶叶进行明确的描述,对于他的投诉,网站的管理者也表示无能为力。

从事网络茶叶销售的杨阳告诉记者,在网购茶叶中,以次充好、以普通产地的茶冒充知名产地茶、以陈茶冒充新茶等情况非常常见。“像以福建龙井冒充西湖龙井的,一般的顾客根本分辨不了。”

虽然网购茶叶有种种弊端,但是成交额却在逐年上涨。记者了解到,淘宝网去年茶叶整体的销售额为3.5亿元。而到今年3月中,茶叶交易额就已经比去年翻了一倍,达到了7亿元。

It is interesting because even though a quick search on dicofol (kelthane) returns a good amount of reading material and that even though since 1994 there is a concern about finding dicofol on dried tea, a teachat search about 'dicofol' or 'kelthane' returns practically nothing. As if this tea community (and I for that matter) was blissfully unaware of this.

How much pesticides do we actually drink within the severals cups of non-organic teas each and every day ? How much pesticides in those that are sold as organic ? What are the chances of having less pesticides when the tea comes from a small farmer in China ? In Japan ?

Tea test, large brands:

Cornell, 1994:

http://pmep.cce.cornell.edu/profiles/insect-mite/ddt-famphur/dicofol/dicofol-rev-use-tea.html

"The USEPA has classified dicofol as a possible human carcinogen."

"Dicofol is not registered for use on tea in the U.S. However, because of its use to control mites in growing tea outside the U.S., a tolerance has been required for imported tea."

Quite a few things to read about it out there.
