Court orders FDA action on antibiotic use on farms

Court orders FDA action on antibiotic use on farms - USATODAY.com:

"In a ruling handed down Thursday, Judge Theodore Katz said the FDA must begin steps to withdraw approval of the two antibiotics for routine use in animals, siding with four consumer safety groups that brought a lawsuit against the agency.

"Today we take a long overdue step toward ensuring that we preserve these lifesaving medicines for those who need them most — people," said Avinash Kar, attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council.
The court ruling will not immediately halt the use of antibiotics on farms. The FDA must first give drug companies a chance to respond and schedule a public hearing."
