FDA Denies Citizen Petitions on Animal Antibiotics
Date:11/9/2011

or the drug companies to voluntarily do what the Agency is legally mandated to do. There is absolutely no reason to believe that drug companies will voluntarily reduce sales of antibiotics and act against their own financial self-interest. Without reductions in antibiotics used it is impossible for there to be any public health benefit," said Steven Roach, FACT's Public Health Program Director. "For this reason we do not see the FDA's plan as an answer to the petitions or the problem of antibiotic resistance."

In addition to bringing suit against the FDA, FACT also supports the Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act. This federal legislation, if passed, would require the FDA to address non-therapeutic antibiotic use and make it easier for the Agency to withdraw animal antibiotics that are found to be unsafe from an antibiotic resistance standpoint.

"Reducing antibiotic overuse is essential for making sure antibiotics will keep working for years to come – to treat our sick children, families and animals. It is outrageous that the FDA considers voluntary self-regulation by drug companies to be enough. It is clearly not," said FACT's Executive Director Richard Wood.
