ABOUT FARAD:

The Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) is part of the Food Animal Residue Avoidance & Depletion Program, which has served the veterinary profession for more than 35 years. FARAD is supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and is operated by faculty and staff in colleges of veterinary medicine at the University of California-Davis, University of Florida, Kansas State University and North Carolina State University. The overarching goal of FARAD is to provide current and accurate scientific information to veterinary practitioners and thereby foster production of animal-derived human foods that are devoid of unsafe chemical residues, including drugs, pesticides, natural toxins and environmental contaminants. To fulfill this goal, FARAD provides open access to comprehensive up-to-date information and data resources for food animal drugs and, through research and outreach activities, FARAD provides science-based estimates of safe withdrawal intervals for food-producing animal species that have been treated with or exposed to drugs or other chemicals.
