Free-range chicken eggs collected near Maputo/Matola showed high levels of dioxins that exceeded
European Union (EU) limit by 2/3 of its value (5.07 pg/g in eggs, 3.0 pg/g is limit). Level of PCBs in
eggs was almost 2.5-times of proposed EU limit. Also level of total WHO-TEQ level by 2-fold (level
measured in Mozambique was 9.45 pg/g and limit is 5.0 pg/g). To our knowledge, this study
represents the first data about U-POPs in any food items from Mozambique.
