CDC Promoting U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week

11/18/2020

The week of November 18th-24th has been designated U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week.  The CDC intens to provide information on prevention of foodborne diseases and to educate the public on the dangers of excessive or injudicious use of antibiotics.

 

The CDC estimates that nearly 700,000 citizens are infected with either drug resistant Salmonella or Campylobacter .

 

It is noted that financial and ethical considerations severely constrained the administration of antibiotics in egg production for many years even before the FDA restrictions were imposed.   

 

Additional information will be posted on the CDC website <www.cdc.gov>.
