FDA Veterinarian Newsletter January/February 2003 Volume XVIII, No 1

On December 13, 2002, a Consent Decree of Per-manent Injunction was signed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Larson Dairy, Inc. and Louis E. Larson, Sr. for the sale of cows and calves for human consumption whose tissues exceeded the tolerances for residues of penicillin and neomycin. The violative tissue samples from Larson Dairy were collected from November 17, 2000 through October 15, 2001. Larson Dairy is the largest dairy in the State of Florida producing over 30,000 gallons of milk a day and shipping for human consumption over 6,000 head of cattle a year.
