US - The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), in conjunction with the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), will conduct a Dioxin 08 survey beginning September 4.

The survey is scheduled to run 12 to 18 months and will gather data about dioxin levels in U.S. beef, pork and poultry. A total of 500 fat samples will be collected in federally inspected establishments and this data will be used to determine if dioxin levels in meat and poultry remain low and if steps can be taken to reduce dioxin levels.
