Mandarins from Croatia pose a serious health risk. Mandarins have been registered in Slovenia, reports the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF).

They contain chlorpyrifos-ethyl, which is used as an insecticide and acaricide, as it is one of the organophosphorus pesticides that inhibit the action of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. This enzyme is involved in the transmission of nerve signals.

For these reasons, the use of chlorpyrifos and chlorpyrifos-methyl has been banned in the European Union since February 2020.
