Basic Information

Overview

The USDA's Microbiological and Residue Computer Information System is a consolidated database of laboratory analyses containing sample identification information, and results of samples submitted by inspection personnel to laboratories. Samples consist of meat, poultry, and egg products. They are analyzed to ensure that they are safe, unadulterated, and properly labeled.
