Memo in Support of NRDC MSJ 10/6/11

January 12, 2012

On October 6, 2011, NRDC and its partners filed arguments in their May 2011 lawsuit against FDA over the risky use in animal feed of antibiotics important to human medicine. The suit seeks to compel the FDA to take action on the agency’s own 35-year-old safety findings, withdrawing approval for most non-therapeutic uses of penicillin and tetracyclines in animal feed.
