FARAD is a congressionally-mandated risk-management program that is supported by the USDA. The primary mission of FARAD is to provide science-based expert advice to help mitigate unsafe chemical residues (drugs, pesticides, biotoxins, etc.) in products derived from food animals. The program is maintained by a consortium of universities, including University of California-Davis, University of Florida, Kansas State University and North Carolina State University.
