US residue compliance in line with previous years

Some 98.1% of domestic food samples analysed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010 complied with pesticide tolerances, according to the latest figures issued by the FDA. The second release of annual residue monitoring data this year shows that the compliance rate was similar to the 98.6% seen in 2009 (Agrow No 655, p 12). The compliance rate ranged from 97.6% to 99.3% between 1996 and 2009, the FDA points out.
