US pesticide residue reports resurface

Illegal levels of pesticide residues were detected in 1.6% of the 1,260 samples of domestic food monitored routinely in the US in 2006. That compares with a violation rate of 1.4% in 2005, some 1.8% in 2004 and 2.4% in 2003. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued residue monitoring results for 2004-2006 after a three-year gap followed the posting of the 2003 figures in 2005 ( Agrow No 484, p 16).
