The Meat Testing Lab analyzes meat and meat product samples obtained during inspections of state plant and processing facilities. Tests for levels of fat, moisture, protein, sulfites, and added non-meat products ensure label compliance of these products. Antibiotic residues and cross-contamination from other species are also monitored. Samples from processing facilities are also tested for the presence of Salmonella and other pathogens.
