All 209 PCB congeners were analyzed in cheese produced in Korea and Canada. 5 Korean and 10 Canadian cheeses were purchased in supermarket in their native countries. 93 PCB congeners were found in Korean cheese; 83 congeners were detected in Canadian cheese. Total PCB concentrations were 299.81 and 200.96 pg/g w.w. in Korean and Canadian cheeses respectively; PCB concentration was 1.5 times higher in Korean than Canadian cheese. Korean TEQ concentration (0.0067 pg-TEQ/g w.w.) in cheese was similar to in Canadian cheese (0.0064 pg-TEQ/g w.w.). These PCB concentrations range was low level compared with that of other cheeses globally. The correlation coefficient of regression was high (0.752) between each PCB congener concentration in both Korean and Canadian cheese.
