USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) this week published  information about the agency’s implementing its new multi-class residue method of testing for the National Residue Program (NRP) for meat, poultry, and egg products.  The information is in the form of seven questions and answers about the restructuring of the NRP.  In 2012, FSIS is testing nine production classes under the scheduled program: beef cows, dairy cows, steers, heifers, bob veal, market hogs, sows, young chickens, and young turkeys.  FSIS listed the analytes and veterinary drugs the testing will screen.  The seven questions and answers are available here.
