Hear from FDA about the latest pesticide residue enforcement policies
This webinar will include an overview of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s testing, monitoring, and enforcement policies for pesticide residues in foods generally, and specifically how FDA will address chlorpyrifos residues in/on foods that recently had tolerances revoked by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In the United States, the EPA establishes pesticide tolerances on foods, however, it is the role of the FDA to enforce the EPA pesticide tolerances for domestic and imported foods, with the exception of meat, poultry, catfish, and certain egg products that are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
In February, FDA released a guidance document titled Questions and Answers Regarding Channels of Trade Policy for Human Food Commodities with Chlorpyrifos Residues: Guidance for Industry that outlines the agency’s planned enforcement strategy for food containing chlorpyrifos residues in the coming months and years.
Join this presentation to learn more about how these policies impact your companies.
