The mission of the MSCL is to provide the analytical data to ensure the quality, accurate labeling, and safety of all fertilizers, animal feeds, human foods, pesticides, and petroleum products sold in the State of Mississippi. Analyses are routinely performed to supply information required for regulatory action by Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce (MDAC), Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) and other regulatory agencies for the state. Under Mississippi’s amended Food Law of 1997, MSCL has been given primary responsibility for providing chemical, physical and microbiological analytical services in support of food regulatory programs.
