During the period 2007-2009, a total of 55 honey samples of three assortments (polyfloral, acacia, lime) were analyzed for nitrofurans residues by immunoaffinity ELISA methods. Research results have emphasized that residues of nitrofurans (furazolidone metabolite, AOZ 3-amino-2-oxazolidona and furaltadone metabolite, AMOZ 3-amino-5-2-oxazolidona morfolinometil) were detected in all three kinds of honey and had values ranging from 0.630-0.892 μg / kg for AOZ and between 0.842-0.894 μg / kg for AMOZ, both metabolites analyzed having values below the MRPL (minimum required performance limit) of 1 μg / kg .
