The Food & Drug Administration's second highest ranking official, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, testified that his agency "supports ending the use of antibiotics for growth and feed efficiency in the United States."

He made the statement during a hearing before the House Rules Committee. Sharfstein testified "there is clear evidence that the use of antimicrobials in general selects for resistant organisms under conditions of constant exposure (growth promotion/feed efficiency) to antibiotics, the use of antimicrobials should be limited to those situations where human and animal health are protected."
