Preservation of Antibiotics

The end result: Drugs that are important for humans and used in animal feed for non-therapeutic purposes will be re-moved from the market unless the manufacturer can prove, within two years’ time, “reasonable certainty of no harm to human health due to the development of antimicrobial resistance that is attributable in whole or in part to the non-therapeutic use of the drug…”
