Pesticides on market produce

In Bangkok, the local authorities check fresh produce at the markets to see if they have more than the acceptable limit of pesticides. Is the same done in Phuket, or is fresh produce sold untested?

We regularly take randomly selected samples of meat and vegetables from both fresh produce markets and supermarkets, and test them for pesticides at Wachira Phuket Hospital.
