Estimation of dietary exposures to pesticide residues in agricultural and livestock commodities is critical in regulating the safe use of pesticide products. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has long used the Dietary Exposure Evaluation Model-Food Commodity Intake Database (DEEM-FCID or DEEM) successfully for such purposes. Increasingly complex assessments…
