In the present study, the presence and levels of tetracycline-group antibiotics in the eggs coded according to the cultivation method (0-3) and those not coded were investigated. For this purpose, total 60 eggs (30 in each group) were used as sample. ELISA method and commercial test kits were used in the analyses. According to the results of the analysis , tetracycline residuals were found in 66.7% (n=40) of the egg samples. The level of tetracycline ranged between 2.40–83.74 ppb (mean: 37.59±25.11) in all the eggs samples. Only 33.3% (n=20) were found to contain no tetracycline residual. No tetracycline residue was detected in any of the organic egg samples. Tetracycline residue levels determined in egg samples were found to comply with the legal limits stated in the European Union Commission and Turkish Food Codex Egg Communiqué.
