Food Test Questions You May Have
What kinds of things can you test food for?
How do I get started?
Get the information about the test you need on our Food Tests page. Add the test to your cart and check out with your credit card. You can also send payment as a check or money order with your sample and receive a discount.
A link to all of the instructions for marking, packaging, and mailing in your sample can be found on the test description page for your specific test. They can also be found here.
For all the tests, print the Sample Submission Form. Fill it out and send it back in your package. We will not begin testing without the form.
Once we get your sample, we’ll send you an email to let you know it’s arrived and testing has begun. When your results are ready, we will send them to you in the manner you’ve indicated on the Sample Submission Form.
These tests are all performed by trained technicians in a certified lab. None of these are home test kits--we do not send anything to your home.
What does the chemicals food test look for?
We can test food for thousands of substances including herbicides, pesticides, solvents, food coloring and additives, cleaning products, BPA, antifreeze, and fracking chemicals. Click here for more detail.
I got food from a restaurant and think someone tampered with it. Can you test it?
Sure. Package the food and send it to us. We can test for saliva, chemicals, drugs, bacteria, allergens, and more.
What does the drug food test look for?
We test for hundreds of prescription, over the counter, and illegal drugs. This includes amphetamines, antihistamines, barbiturates, cough syrups, marijuana, opiates, muscle relaxants, and more. Click here for more detail. Call 800-908-9117 or email us if you are looking for something specific you don't see here.
How do I ship a sample for food testing?
For the chemicals/poisons, drug, or saliva food tests, refrigeration of the sample is not necessary, however we do recommend you ship overnight. Any bacteria food testing requires that you ship your sample overnight, with cold packs, and in a cooler.
Here’s a link to complete instructions for packaging and shipping your sample.
Print, fill out, and return the Sample Submission Form with your sample(s). This form must be signed and returned before any testing can begin. We will not begin testing without a signed form.
I've had the food for a while. Can it still be tested?
As long as the food hasn't begun to deteriorate, we can test it. Refrigerated foods should be tested as quickly as possible after purchase. If you can't send it ASAP, freeze it until you are ready to send.
Can My Results Be Used in Court?
Chain of custody refers to the paperwork trail documenting the way a sample is collected and handled throughout the entire testing process. Since you will be collecting the samples yourself and submitting them privately, you will not have a strict chain of custody. Generally speaking, for results to have a strict chain of custody, the samples must be collected by an unrelated third party such as a hospital, clinic, ME’s office, funeral director, law enforcement, etc. For obvious reasons this rigorous identification and handling procedure is not always going to be possible. Courts and legal official know this, and the weight the results will be given is up to the agency. We always recommend you reserve some of your sample in case further testing needs to be done by a law enforcement or other legal agency.
What Our Customers Say
At Christmas my neighbor brought me some food over. I thought it was a very nice thing to do. Then I started getting sick. The Food Poisoning Panel showed it was contaminated with Salmonella. I know she didn’t mean to make me sick, but I’ve learned my lesson. Never eat food you don’t cook yourself!
Thank you for your food test for drugs! I sent in some candy a co-worker had given me and it had THC in it! I knew she wanted my job, but couldn’t believe she would stoop that low. Thanks to your food testing I have proof of what she was up to.
After getting very sick after eating at a popular fast food chain restaurant, I sent in some of the food I brought home for testing. It tested positive for the cleaning fluid they used on the grill. Now the doctor knows what to treat me for, and I’ll bet the restaurant is more careful from on!
