Salicylic acid ranged from "not detected" to 19 µg/L among the 19 samples.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Salicylic acid, which is described as a food preservative, has been detected at low but significant levels

(kraft pulp mills, sawmilling, log booming, transportation and livestock ranching).
