In the period from 1985 to 1999, about 600 samples of total diet foods from Canadian cites were analysed for dioxins, furans and non-ortho-PCBs. Toxic equivalent (TEQ) concentrations on a lipid basis were found to be the highest in dairy and beef products followed by poultry and pork. These levels decreased over the 15-year period of sampling, particularly those for fluid milk, less so for poultry and pork and little or no change for beef. Calculation of the human daily intake for the years 1985-1988 showed values a little less than 1 pg of TEQ(2005) polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin/polychlorinated dibenzofuran per kg body weight, falling progressively to less than 0.5 pg of TEQ in 1999. These estimates are lower than the 2.3 pg of TEQ currently recommended by the WHO. The main categories of foods contributing to the TEQ were animal meats and dairy products, with lesser amounts from fish and other foods.
