Investigation results The toxins Alternariol (content 81.7 ?g/kg) and Tenuazonic acid (content 549 ?g/kg) were detected in the sample. Elevated levels of one or more of these toxins indicate that mold-infested tomatoes were processed. The tenuazonic acid content of the sample is 549 ?g/kg and is much higher than the content in comparable products (0 to 91.2 ?g/kg). Therefore, explicit reference is made to the ALARA principle according to Art. 2 (1) VO (EWG) No. 315/93.
