Ban Arsenic and Antibiotics In Animal Feed
|******** Action Alerts for This Campaign ********|
Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources has issued an Invasive Species Order, supposedly to help stop the spread of feral swine. But in the order, the swine are identified by such ubiquitous characteristics that most any open-range pigs, especially heritage breeds raised on small family farms, are defined as illegal “invasive species” and are thus unjustly threatened with eradication. Ask Gov. Rick Snyder and Michigan legislators to repeal the Invasive Species Order and support the heritage breeds of pigs being raised by small farmers.
Please tell FDA to stop creating ineffective voluntary standards, and finally complete the process they started 35 years ago. Tell them to withdraw approval of non-therapeutic uses of antibiotics in animal feed immediately, as ordered by the court.
