Abstract

Broiler chickens were fed three dietary variations containing 20 ppm of the polychlorinated biphenyl mixtures Aroclor 1242 or Aroclor 1254 for an 8-week growth period. The time course of residue accumulation in fat and blood was determined. Fat accumulation reached a maximum of 98 ppm for Aroclor 1242 and 161 ppm for Aroclor 1254. Highest residue levels were found in fat followed by liver, kidney, spleen, muscle, brain, and blood. Differences between tissues in component composition of total residue were examined.
