India's National Center for Disease Control's National Policy for Containment of Antimicrobial Resistance has put a cap on how much antibiotics can be put into poultry products, the first time such regulation has been provided, according to officials.
The new policy has named common antibiotics like tetracycline, oxytetracycline, trimethoprim and oxolinic acid, and clearly mentioned that their use "shall not exceed the prescribed tolerance limit." In addition, the use of over 20 antibiotics or pharmacologically active substances has been prohibited in poultry products. "Antibiotics are used by farmers to prevent infection in poultry," said Professor Randeep Guleria from the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences. "However, until now there was no limitation. We don't want such meat to enter the food chain and lead to the emergence of antibiotic resistance in humans who eat it. That's why we have fixed limits."
