Nom nom nom!

Eighty percent of the antibiotics sold in the United States goes to chicken, pigs, cows and other animals that people eat, yet producers of meat and poultry are not required to report how they use the drugs — which ones, on what types of animal, and in what quantities.

But surely meat producers will be responsible in this usage, and so increased resistance among many strains of bacteria won't be a problem, right?

Uh, yeah. Something like that.
