Abstract:  Because of potential adverse effects on human health, some drugs are prohibited by the US Food and Drug Administration from use in food animals. The author discusses these drugs and drug classes (diethylstilbestrol, chloramphenicol, nitroimidazoles, sulfonamides [in dairy cattle], nitrofurans (furazolidone and nitrofurazone), clenbuteral, dipyrone, fluoroquinolones (enrofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, sarafloxacin) and glycopeptides (vancomycin). She also briefly describes the hazards to humans that each can cause, and she discusses avoidance of violative tissue residues of allowable drugs in food-producing animals.
