Description
 
From 1970 to 2007, hundreds of millions of pounds of pesticides were applied annually to U.S. food crops to protect them from pests. To protect consumers, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets standards -- known as tolerances -- for pesticide residues on foods. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) monitors meat, poultry, and processed egg products to ensure they do not violate EPA's tolerances, and the Food and Drug Admin. (FDA) monitors other foods, including fruits and vegetables. The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) gathers annual residue data for highly consumed foods, although not for enforcement purposes. This report examines (1) what FDA data show with respect to pesticide residue violations in the foods that it regulates; (2) what FSIS data show with respect to pesticide residue violations in the foods that it regulates; and (3) what AMS data show with respect to pesticide residue levels in fruits and vegetables. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
