The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply has expanded its monitoring of residues
of antibiotics, antiparasitics and other substances in animal products in order to identify whether
the levels of such substances are at safe concentrations for human consumption. A new national
program (RENARA) for identifying and managing the risks associated with the presence of residues and
contaminants in food is outlined.
