Peanut contact with soil during cultivation may result in exposure to mycotoxin-producing molds. Aflatoxin is classified as a Group I carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and is regulated in 60+ countries at levels as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1 and 4 ppb for total aflatoxins.
