Should I be concerned about antibiotics and added hormones in my pork?

No. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not permit the use of added hormones for growth promotion in pork production. Furthermore, farmers work with veterinarians to ensure they’re using antibiotics responsibly when necessary, and pork entering the food system is tested and confirmed safe. Pork producers and veterinarians are committed to protecting public health, animal health and animal well-being through the responsible use of antibiotics.
