NAT'L PORK PRODUCERS COUNCIL URGES FDA TO REVISE ANTIMICROBIAL CONCEPT PAPER
National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) reports:

Last week, NPPC submitted comments to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on a concept paper that aims to rank antimicrobials for their importance to human health. Pork producers work with their veterinarians to reduce the need to use antimicrobials and, when needed, to administer them in a responsible manner, as prescribed in the industry's Pork Quality Assurance Program.

"The complexity of antimicrobial stewardship is unnecessarily compounded by the addition of tiers and groups," in addition to classifying drugs as highly or critically important, NPPC wrote. NPPC had a number of other concerns with the concept paper.

A copy of NPPC's full comments is available here.
