The most recent Pesticide Residue Monitoring Report and Data administered by the FDA has once again confirmed that over 99% of residues, if present at all, on food samples are well below tolerances set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The FDA also stated that “The findings in this report demonstrate that overall levels of pesticide chemical residues measured by the FDA are below EPA’s tolerances, and therefore at levels that are not concerning for public health.”

The media typically does not cover these findings, so the Alliance for Food and Farming is focusing on creating blogs to highlight the safety of fruits and veggies when it comes to pesticide residues.
