CFIA tests food. And it's mostly a pretty good story.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency released a study today in which it was found that

more than 98 percent of a wide variety of food samples tested were compliant with Health Canada standards for chemical residues and metals.

This CFIA study was conducted in 2009-2010 under the National Chemical Residue Monitoring Program (NCRMP). Approximately 160,000 tests were performed between April 2009 and September 2010 on more than 20,000 samples, producing over three million result
