Horse Supplies, Equine Supplies & Horse Drugs are the focus for DVL Nitrofurazone. Approval of human systemic preparations was withdrawn in 1974 and of systemic animal nitrofuran products in 1991. Studies have recently documented that topicals labeled for treatment of pinkeye in cattle, sheep, and goats and surface wounds in all livestock result in milk and meat residues. Manufacturers have agreed to remove their food animal indications.
FDA prohibits the extralabel use of topical nitrofuran animal and human drugs in food-producing animals. This order is based on evidence that extralabel use of topical nitrofuran drugs in food-producing animals may result in the presence of residues that are carcinogenic and have not been shown to be safe. A carbon-14 (C-14) radio-label residue depletion study conducted by the FDA showed that detectable levels of nitrofuran derivatives are present in edible tissues (milk, meat, kidney, liver) of cattle treated by the ocular (eye) route. The study indicates that use of these nitrofuran products may pose a risk to public health because residues of known carcinogens are present in edible tissues.
