Animal drug makers edit labeling of antibiotics

  • The FDA reports that 25 of 26 animal drug manufacturers have voluntarily agreed to remove labeling for "growth promotion" in response to the agency's December guidance.
  • The firms represent 99% of industry sales.
  • The change will be implemented over the next 3 years.
  • Antibiotics may still be used to treat, control and prevent disease but must be administered with a veterinarian's oversight.
