Melamine analysis for imported food and related products detained by the FDA

According to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) website, imports of food and related products have been increasing by 5-10 percent every year for the past decade. The rising trend of importation increases the likelihood that unsafe or adulterated products will be detained entry into US commerce until the FDA has determined their admissibility. These products often need analytical testing to prove they meet US regulatory requirements and are safe for human and animal consumption before entering the marketplace.
