A summary of the results of the milk cross-check program from July 1973 through November 1974 is given. Examination of these results reveals that 29% of the participants were within the plus or minus 3 sigma control limits for strontium-89 analysis, 42% for the strontium-90, 52% for barium-140, 60% for iodine-131, and 77% for cesium-137. These results indicate the need for improvement in analytical procedures for the radionuclides studies. Accurate analysis of strontium-89 was particularly difficult for most laboratories to achieve, while the accurate analysis of cesium-137 was the least difficult.
