Summary

Eggs from free range hens have frequently higher content of dioxins and PCB. As recycling manure may concentrate contaminants in the larvae, we tested whether larvae reared in poultry manure accumulated dioxins and PCB, and if feeding laying hens with these larvae would increase the levels of dioxins and PCB in the hen eggs.
