The authors comment on a case regarding the detection of chloramphenicol (CAP) in shrimp imported into Europe from Asian countries in 2002. They believe a regulatory shift away from zero tolerance, according to which CAP is no longer regulated at zero level but at the Minimum Required Performance Limit (MRPL) level is clearly needed to improve pharmaceutical and industrial chemical regulation especially in light of overwhelming evidence of hormesis in relation to many low-level exposures.
