The six units selected must be primary samples taken at random from throughout the load. Each sample unit must represent a different animal. In other words, a single liver cut into six units of 250 g would not meet the requirement. All samples must be individually wrapped.

Additional samples of all pork muscle, fresh or frozen, not further processed, of Mexican, Puerto Rican, or United States origin must be sent to the CFIA Centre for Veterinary Drug Residues in Saskatoon (see address below).

However, do not sample products such as frozen dinners or entrées, chili, stew, soup, lasagne, ravioli, pizza, etc. (frozen, fresh or canned).

Forms: Samples (with the exception of fresh or frozen pork from Mexico, Puerto Rico, or the United States) are to be shipped to private laboratories, in accordance with the table below. They will be analyzed for one or more of the following: veterinary drugs, pesticides and heavy metals.
