This is an evaluation project, directed at evaluating the success of the research project Poultry Meat: Improving Food Safety by Improving Chemical Residue Surveillance (safefood Project No. RESR 050), 1st April 2001 to 31st March 2005.
This evaluation project considered the effect of the research project, overall, in reducing the incidence of the anticoccidial Nicarbazin occurring at high levels in broiler liver samples, through the identification of the problem in the various surveys carried out within the project and the dissemination activities with the poultry industry throughout the lifetime of the project.
