SOUTH KOREA – Feed Antibiotic Ban Ahead For South Korea – June 02, 2011

SOUTH KOREA – The country is to ban the use of antibiotics in animal feed from July.

South Korea plans to ban the mixing of antibiotics with animal feed from July in an effort to raise consumer trust in the safety of livestock products, the government said yesterday, 31 May.

Yonhap reports that South Korea allowed 44 types of antibiotics to be mixed with feed until 2005 but it has gradually cut the number since then as scientists warn of serious side-effects when livestock receive too many antibiotics.
