Welcome to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Pesticide Residue Monitoring Report and Data for Fiscal Year (FY) 2002. The report summarizes the results of FDA’s pesticide monitoring program for FY 2002. Results in the report demonstrate that levels of pesticide residues in the U.S. food supply are well below established safety standards.
