You may have already heard about the new guidance recently issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concerning the use of antibiotics in commercial livestock, which on its surface appears to be a positive step forward for cleaning up the factory farm industry.

Antibiotic era ending - Antimicrobial pecan shell extract can prevent Listeria contamination in organic meats


Stats prove that consumers are becoming more concerned about the quality of their meat. In the organic food industry, meat, fish and poultry are the fastest growing sector. Sales for organic meat were up 13% from 2010. On a global scale, organic food sales have increased more than 5 billion per year, with organic meat leading the way.
