This work describes thetreatment of Pinus pinaster wood withfour different industrial wood preservatives two anti-bluing or fungicide andtwo fungicide-pesticide and the detection and quantification of the dioxincontamination profile in the wood shavings. The samples were collected frompoultry liters during three contamination incidents of poultry meat. Twomethods used were, both nonpressure: one by immersing the wood samples in thepreservative solution and the other by impregnation of the preservativesolution into the wood, with vacuum. It was concluded that there is nodifference in terms of contamination profile, caused by the differentindustrial wood treatment preservative products in study. A clear correlationbetween the commercial products used in wood treatment and the contaminationprofile of wood shavings that have been used as bedding material in poultryproduction was detected.
