Chloramphenicol

Chloramphenicol is a broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. However, in humans it leads to Chloramphenicol induced aplastic anaemia. This has led to the use of Chloramphenicol being totally banned within the European Union since 1994 for the treatment of animals used for food production.

Chloramphenicol is banned within the meat testing industry which may be passed through to tissue from medicated feeds.
