The following article: doi: 10.3390/foods2010064, available online at: http://www.mdpi.com/2304-8158/2/1/64 , has been retracted by the authors because of some major errors in the broad field of identifying pesticide residue and its concentration. During random cross-check, retention time of pesticides by HPLC did not match with the standard values. As a result, the concentrations of all detected pesticides, maximum residue limits (MRLs), and health risk assessments were altered. These errors render the article  incorrect. All authors have confirmed that the reported results were produced using quite inappropriate procedures. As first author, I take full responsibility for the retraction and any other errors in its contents, and would like to offer my apologies on behalf of my co-authors to the readership of Foods for any inconvenience caused by this retraction.
