FDA Urges Farmers To Eliminate Antibiotic Use

Fearing the spread of drug-resistant bacteria, the Food and Drug Administration has asked pharmaceutical companies to stop dispensing antibiotics to livestock without a prescription. What do you think?

“Look, if I notice any dangerous diseases in my livestock growing resistant to antibiotics threatening the rest of mankind, I’ll let someone know.”

"Antibiotic-laced meat can have its upside. I pride myself on the fact that my sweat glands can excrete pure metronidazole."

Mary O’Herne • Hand Packager

"Well, guess they have to go back to slathering the hogs in Purell again."
