Urgent: Get Antibiotics Out of Organic Apple and Pear Production ACTION US

Health & Wellness  (tags: food, apples, pears, antibiotic spray, health, protection, family )

- 1895 days ago -
Apple and pear trees are the only exception to the prohibition on antibiotics in organic production, and that loophole must be closed. Other countries, including Canada and Japan, and the European Union, do not permit its use in organic fruit production.

Absolutely. The focus has been much more on livestock and not enough information has been out there about the use of antibiotics for Fire Blight in fruits.

Three times in a row clicking the visit site button has sent me to another care2 article.

There is a problem with this article. clicking the - VISIT SITE - button to sign the petition, takes you to an article about "A Journey to the Heart of Ecuador's Yasuni".

Antibiotics in organic apples and pears?! Sounds like an oxymoron to me!
