  1. DF detection frequency
  2. No other neonicotinoids were identified in baby or infant foods
  3. These data also contributed to the overall commodity findings
  4. amean concentrations and range of concentrations were calculated among commodities with pesticide detected; See Additional file 2 for LODs by year, commodity and neonicotinoid
