The FDA is implementing a voluntary program that will limit antibiotics in meat by requiring veterinary approval before each use.
The Food and Drug Administration is taking steps toward implementing a policy to eliminate the overuse of antibiotics in commercially produced meats. Adopting this strategy will be voluntary for producers; should they opt in, it will require veterinary consent before antibiotics may be administered to livestock. FDA Deputy Commissioner Michael R. Taylor believes that making this policy voluntary will ensure a higher opt-in rate from producers. You can read the full release on the FDA's website.
