FDA Proposal Would Yield Better Data on Antibiotics in Meat, Poultry
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a proposed rule this spring that would increase the amount of data the agency collects on antibiotic sales for use in food-producing animals. Specifically, the FDA proposes revisions to its annual reporting requirements for drug sponsors of all antimicrobials sold or distributed for use in food-producing animals in order to obtain estimates of sales by major food-producing species (cattle, swine, chickens, and turkeys).  IDSA has repeatedly called on FDA to expand its sales data collection to species level (see here and here). The IDSA Public Health Committee is currently working on a comment letter in support of finalizing the rule.
