FDA Faces Lawsuit Over Animal Feed Containing Arsenic

Animal-Feed-BagThe Food and Drug Administration is facing a lawsuit because it continues to allow arsenic in animal feed given to chickens, turkeys and hogs.  The suit was filed on behalf of a handful of advocacy groups, including the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy.  

Senior advisor David Wallinga says it stems from a petition that was filed against the FDA three years ago.

The suit seeks to yank FDA approval of the four different animal-feed arsenic products that are currently on the market.
