Milk was collected over a four-month period from three representative sectors of Puerto Rico. Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) performed on the samples showed that the mercury concentration was slightly higher than the safe upper limit set by the World Health Organisation on food products. INAA for cadmium yielded high values when compared with atomic absorption.
