The use of pesticides and insecticides in the Agricultural Industry has always been widespread in the past. However, their use is now under close scrutiny by many consumer and government agencies since the short-term and cumulative effects of these materials has been shown to be potentially hazardous to humans and animals.

Since almost all domesticated livestock feed is of fresh or harvested plant material, it’s common to find pesticide residues collecting in the flesh of these animals. The pesticides are then passed on to the people that consume the meat processed from these animals. Many government regulations have specific tolerances for such contamination in food products. Standard methods from AOAC, U.S. FDA, and USDA are available to illustrate the complexity and diversity of these regulations.
