FDA Won’t Bar Extralabel Use Of Cephalosporin



Published:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has revoked its order prohibiting the extralabel use of cephalosporin antimicrobial drugs in food-producing animals.

The order, originally announced July 3 in the Federal Register, would have gone into effect Nov. 30.

The decision was made so the agency can fully consider the remarks submitted during the comment period.

As detailed in the July 3 rule, the decision to prohibit extralabel use of cephalosporins in food-producing animals was based on information that such uses likely contribute to the emergence of cephalosporin-resistant zoonotic food-borne pathogens.

If, after considering the comments and other information, the FDA wants to issue another ban, it will initiate another public comment period.
