The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) conducts a national Chemical Residue Sampling Program to monitor chemical residue levels on domestic and imported fresh fruits and vegetables. The objective of the program is to safeguard Canada's domestic and imported produce by enforcing the Canada Agricultural Products Act and the Food and Drugs Act through the CFIA's inspection, sampling, testing and compliance activities.
