Misusers

Experts frustrated over Ottawa’s inaction on antibiotic misuse in agriculture.

The meat and poultry industries have been very slow to take steps toward prudent drug use, McEwen adds.  “I’m disappointed there hasn’t been greater uptake in prudent use. But without tighter regulations there’s little incentive for good behavior.”

The report from CCAR also notes that the escalation of antibiotic resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is also a concern in hospitals and argues that failure to act will place a growing burden on health budgets.
