An urgent review is underway after a Four Corners investigation found elevated levels of dangerous dioxins in a generic version of 24D, one of Australia's most widely used herbicides.
Dioxins are one of the most deadly chemical compounds in the world, but Australian authorities do not routinely test for them.
One scientist said the product tested by Four Corners, which was imported from China, had one of the highest dioxin readings for 24D in the last 10 to 20 years, and could pose potential health risks.
The product, marketed as Aminoz 625, is imported from China by Melbourne company Sanonda.
