Residue Sampling Results: Fiscal Year 2016 Red Book
The United States National Residue Program for meat, poultry, and egg products is an interagency program, administered by FSIS, that examines food samples for the presence of several different chemical compound classes, including veterinary drugs, pesticides, and metals. In collaboration with its Federal partners, FSIS selected the chemical compounds based on their potential public health concern. All samples were analyzed at one of three ISO 17025-accredited FSIS laboratories.
This report presents results from October 2015 to September 2016.
Accompanying the report is an Excel spreadsheet. This sheet includes detailed information regarding samples taken by FSIS in both the scheduled sampling and the inspector-generated sampling. The detailed results include sample collection and review dates, the project code, the animal class, tissue type, chemical residue name, concentration value, sample results (whether positive non-violative or positive violative), chemical concentration values (if any) and the CFR reference per chemical listed in the data sheet.
