We all want confidence that the foods we eat are safe and wholesome. Many layers of protection safeguard the meat, poultry and dairy products on our tables.
Zoetis, along with farmers and veterinarians, works together with state and federal authorities to ensure food is safe and wholesome every day.
SAFEGUARDS FOR WHOLESOME FOODS
Many organisations provide consumers information about:
•How veterinarians are involved in animal care
•How the APVMA approves medicines before they may be used on the farm
•How animals that receive antibiotics must be withheld from the food supply until the medicines have cleared their systems
•How government agencies require testing for milk and meat for the presence of residues before they enter the food supply
