South Korea plans to ban the mixing of antibiotics with animal feed from July in an effort to raise consumer trust in the safety of livestock products, Yonhap news agency reported quoting the government as saying Tuesday.

South Korea allowed 44 types of antibiotics to be mixed with feed before 2005, but it has gradually cut the number since then as scientists warn of serious side effects when livestock receive too many antibiotics.

"The government will impose a total ban on the addition of antibiotics to animal feed by revising rules governing animal feed production," the farm ministry said. "The new rules will enhance the safety of local meat and dairy products."

Under the revised rules, the use of eight types of antibiotics will be prohibited, along with one kind of antimicrobial agent, the ministry said.
