No vegetables with excessive pesticides had been detected in exports from the mainland to Hong Kong for 14 consecutive years, Xinhua quoted an official of the Shenzhen Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau as saying. Some 99.4 per cent of 3,811 samples inspected in the first 10 months of the year had met safety standards, the official said.
