"The agency said that it was giving drug companies that sell antibiotics for animal feed 90 days to voluntarily rewrite the labels on those drugs. The new labels will say that the antibiotics and antimicrobials can only be used to treat actual illnesses in animals under the supervision of a veterinarian."
"Drugs that will be affected include tetracyclines, penicillin and macrolides such as azithromycin, Flynn said.
Classes of drugs that are not used to treat human illness will continue to be available to animal producers to add to feed to increase growth, said Flynn."
