US pesticide residue violations down sharply in fiscal 2008

Illegal levels of pesticides were found in less than 1% of US-produced food routinely sampled in the year ended September 30th 2008. The 0.9% violation rate was sharply down on the 2.7% figure for fiscal 2007 ( Agrow No 574, p 20) and lower than any violation rate for the previous three years ( Agrow No 553, p 15). All 13 samples with illegal residue levels were due to no tolerance existing for use of the pesticide on that commodity.
