Residues of Rabon in Tissues and Egg Yolks of Poultry1
Dosages of 94, 188, 376, 752. and 1504mg of active Rahon® (2-chloro-l- (2.4,5- trichlorophenyl) vinyl dimethyl phosphate), per kg of body weight were fed to Fayoumi hens. Residues of the insecticide were found in the (at of all treated birds. Not until a level of 376 mg/kg was fed were residues present in liver, leg, or breast. Sixty % of the birds receiving 752 mg/kg died during the experiment, and all birds receiving 1504 mg/kg died within 7 days of the initiation of the treatment.
In a 2nd experiment, Rabon was fed at levels of 25, 50,100, and 200 mg/kg to Comet pullets. Egg yolks, fat, liver, leg, and breast were analyzed. Residues of Rabon were found in the fat of all treated birds 24 hours posttreatment. Analyses of tissues of birds slaughtered 7 and 14 days posttreatment showed no Rabon in the fat. In yolks, residues appeared 2 days after initiation of treatment and disappeared 5 days after last day of treatment. At the 25 mg/kg level some yolks had small residues, but the majority had only trace amounts or no detectable residues.
