Frequent Questions

What federal standards exist that address radiation in milk?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets standards for radioactivity in milk. The Food and Drug Administration has set derived intervention levels (DILs) to assure that no one will reach a specific dose that would warrant protective actions as a result of a release of radionuclides. These levels also help the agency determine whether domestic food in interstate commerce or food offered for import into the United States presents a safety concern.
