Wednesday 25 January 2012 (6 years 25 days ago)

The Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety has detected chloramphenicol in urine samples from pigs. The antibiotic was detected during routine inspections under the National Residue Control Plan.

The use of chloramphenicol in food producing animals was banned in 1994.

The pigs were fed using a byproduct of dairy product manufacturer Ehrmann. This company uses chloramphenicol as a laboratory safety procedure and has admitted that the residue product ended up in feed due to careless treatment of the laboratory trash.

All identified companies that could have used the contaminated feed have been banned immediately.
