Background: Nowadays, since the pesticide residues in food products can cause adverse effect on the human health, this study was carried out to determine benomyl and diazinon residues in strawberry and also related health risk assessment.
Methods: In this descriptive study, a total of thirty specimens of greenhouse strawberries were collected from market basket of city of Hamedan. After preparation and processing the samples in the laboratory, benomyl and diazinon residues were determined using spectrophotometer at wavelength 400 nm for benomyl and 245 nm for diazinon in three replications. Also, health risk assessment was computed according to health risk assessment model.
Results: The results showed that among the analyzed strawberry samples benomyl was detected in amounts ranging from 0.013 mg/kg to 0.989 mg/kg, and diazinon ranged from 0.01 mg/kg to 1.416 mg/kg. Also, the mean levels of both pesticide residues in strawberry samples were higher than the Maximum Residue Levels (MRL) established by WHO, and also the EU. On the other hand, although the value of the MOET index with 180.51 indicates the cumulative risk of benomyl and diazinon pesticides in strawberries, based on the results of health index, there are no potential health concerns through consuming of strawberry from the study area.
Conclusion: Although the results of this study showed that there are no potential health risks for consumers through consuming of strawberry, with increasing use of chemical pesticides for farm and garden products, to achieve food safety, regular monitoring of pesticide residues in foodstuffs is recommended.
