FDA starts process to cut back antibiotic overuse in livestock
Date:12/11/2013

n pounds of unnecessary antibiotic use each year. That could go a long way in reducing the development of antibiotic resistance," according to Jessica Shade, Ph.D., Director of Science Programs for The Organic Center. [See infographic]

In addition to prohibiting the use of antibiotics and synthetic growth hormones in organic livestock production, U.S. national organic standards require organic livestock to be fed 100 percent organic feed and given access to pasture and the outdoors. The standards prohibit the use of genetic engineering, toxic and persistent pesticides and herbicides, synthetic fertilizer and sewage sludge on fields. Organic operations are federally regulated, with third-party certification by a U.S. Department of Agriculture-accredited certifier.

"By choosing meat and dairy products bearing the organic label, consumers can avoid contributing to antibiotic-resistant bacteria," said Shade. Noting that studies have found fewer antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria on organic foods such as organic chickens and pork, she added, "If you're worried about dietary exposure to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, choosing organic is an easy and wise choice."

FDA's press release about its latest actions on antibiotic use in livestock also links to information sheets for consumers, frequently asked questions, and final guidance for industry.

The Organic Trade Association (OTA) is the membership-based business association for organic agriculture and products in North America. OTA is the leading voice for the organic trade in the United States, representing over 6,500 organic businesses across 49 states. Its members include growers, shippers, processors, certifiers, farmers' association
