The U.S. Government Accountability Office has issued a report related to its review of the federal government’s oversight of pesticide residues in food. More specifically, the report discusses the congressional watchdog’s analysis of Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service and USDA Agricultural Marketing Service pesticide residue data, the data’s reliability, and the agencies’ methods for sampling foods for testing. Among other things, GAO recommends improvements in FDA’s methodology and disclosure of the limitations in both agencies’ monitoring and data collection efforts.
