FDA considers safety, labels for milk from rBST-treated cows


ASM News Washington 59(7): 325-326
FDA considers safety, labels for milk from rBST-treated cows
The outcomes of 2 advisory panel sessions convened by FDA officials in March and May 1993 to discuss recombinant bovine somatotropin (rGH) are discussed. At the first meeting it was suggested that, although use of rGH to increase milk yields has been associated with a 15-18% increase in the incidence of mastitis amongst dairy cows, it does not present a significant risk to human health.
