 MEWA Fines 3 Poultry Enterprises for Using High Rates of Antibiotics


The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA) has fined three poultry enterprises SAR 300,000 each, for detecting high rates of antibiotics in their products, as attested by lab tests.
This penalty comes in compliance with the Animal Resources Law and Bylaw, which stipulate that MEWA is responsible for the safety of domestic animal products, and making sure that they are free from drug residues and antibiotics.
The Ministry stressed its keen interest in controlling the use of antibiotics for veterinary purposes, given their impact on the development of microbes resisting antimicrobials. Meanwhile, MEWA called on producers of animal products to abide by the drug-free period, and warned that the penalty of non-violation might reach up to SAR 1,000,000, aside from jail and defamation.
