Pesticide Tolerance when no limit is established

“FDA considers samples that contain pesticide residues for which no tolerances have been established by EPA to be in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. FDA uses this information to develop compliance activities, such as conducting targeted testing or implementing Import Alerts to flag future shipments for closer scrutiny. “

You can check pesticide tolerance levels using the instructions on our previous post.
