FDA regulations specify that in order to sell meat for human consumption, the animals have to be off antibiotics and other drugs for a certain period of time in order for the substances to clear from their systems. But Scenic View Dairy's three farms have allegedly been selling them off long before the proper time. "One-half of all antibiotics flagyl in the United States are used in livestock--25 million pounds a year," explains D. Lindsey Berkson in her book Hormone Deception. "Antibiotics tablets can contribute to hormone-disruptor exposure as well as contribute to antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria." It is unclear to what extent the tainted meat has affected the public, but the case is just one more reason for meat eaters to purchase only organic, grass-fed meat.
