Misuse of antibiotics in food-producing animals can cause adverse health effects to humans. Contaminated food, once consumed, can cause antibiotic resistance, reducing the effectiveness of antibiotics in treating diseases. Antibiotic resistance has now become a growing public health concern. That’s why it’s important to be mindful of products that you buy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections.
