Even if there is no clear evidence that organic food products are healthier than conventional ones, the presumed absence of chemical contaminants is reported as main driver for organic consumers.. To provide occurrence data in a context of chronic exposure, samples of liver and meat (psoas major muscle) were collected in 2014 in six French slaughterhouses representing 70 pig farms, including 30 organic, 12 Label Rouge and 28 conventional. Each sample corresponded to a pool of tissues of three carcasses. Environmental contaminants (17 polychlorinated dibenzodioxins/ dibenzofurans (Dioxins), 18 polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), 3 hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) isomers, 6 mycotoxins, 6 trace metal elements) and residues from production inputs (75 antimicrobials and 121 pesticides) were investigated using the most sensitive methods. Contamination levels were measured below regulatory limits in all the samples. However, some differences were observed between types of farming. Dioxins, PCBs and HBCD concentrations were thus observed as significantly higher in organic meat samples. Cu, Zn and As were measured at slightly higher levels in organic meat without differences between organic and Label Rouge. Liver samples from conventional and Label Rouge farms exhibited higher contents in Zn and Cd than the organic ones. Ochratoxin A was the only mycotoxin quantified in 25 samples (36%) and detected in another 22 samples (31%) of the livers analysed, without significant differences between farming systems. A correlation could be observed between mycotoxins concentrations in meat and liver. All meat samples exhibited pesticides levels below the detection limits, whereas only 3 conventional or organic samples (overall: 3.5%) displayed residual concentrations of authorized veterinary antimicrobials, but with concentrations far below the regulatory limits.
