Pesticide Residue Monitoring 2007 Report and Data

Welcome to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Pesticide Residue Monitoring Report and Data for Fiscal Year (FY) 2007. The report summarizes the results of FDA’s pesticide monitoring program for FY 2007. Results in the report demonstrate that levels of pesticide residues in the U.S. food supply are well below established safety standards.

2007 Report

The 2007 report is derived from the pesticide residue data provided in the original analytical sample data file (SMPL2007.txt). Statistical summary files and other reference files are also provided.
