More on the Antibiotic-Free Labeling Investigation

A recent study of beef cattle in a no-antibiotics labeling program found evidence of antibiotics in some beef cattle.

As reported by the Washington Post, the study, published in Science magazine, tested 699 cows at a slaughterhouse that claimed to raise antibiotic-free cattle. The study found that 10% of cattle came from lots where at least one cow tested positive for antibiotics and an additional 5% came from lots with multiple positive antibiotic tests.

The study also found that 26 percent of cattle labeled in the Global Animal Partnership (“G.A.P.”) program came from a lot with at least one positive test for antibiotics. G.A.P. is an animal welfare rating program that is widely used by Whole Foods.
