Would You Like Sketchy Meat With That?

WASHINGTON (CN) - The Food and Drug Administration plans to allow for the importation of meat that contains residues of new animal drugs not approved in the United States.

The FDA seeks comment on its newly proposed procedures for establishing how much of each new animal drug would be allowed in "edible parts of animals" imported into the United States.

Without the proposed procedures, meat with residues of new animal drugs not approved or conditionally approved for human consumption in the United States could not be imported.

The proposed procedures would only apply to drugs legally used on animals in other countries.

General comments are due by April 24; information collection comments are due by Feb. 24.
