FDA appeals order to act on antibiotics in animal feed

from Lincoln Journal Star

The Food and Drug Administration is appealing a federal magistrate's ruling that the FDA must act on its long-standing proposal to ban the use of three antibiotics in animal feed because they may contribute to antibiotic resistance in bacteria. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, Director of the Center for Veterinary Medicine Bernadette Dunham and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius together filed an appeal with the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn the March decision.
