Korea to ban antibiotics in feed

01-09-2008 | |

The Korea Food and Drug Administration from next year will ban the use of seven types of antibiotics in feed for livestock and fish raised in fish farms.

The seven include penicillin, tetracycline and
colistine sulfate.
The administration said continued antibiotic usage in
livestock feed will raise the animals’ tolerance and have an adverse effect on
public health.
