V-Tech established and implemented ‘The V-Tech Actif Plan’ to monitor the inclusion of compounded antibiotics into the feed and the timely withdrawal of the medication. With ongoing checks to ensure that the correct antibiotic is being used through the livestock cycle and then tissue sampling on slaughter to ensure food safety with regards to acceptable levels of drug residue in the final product, V-Tech supports the integrated ‘One Health’ approach – Animal health, human health and environmental health.
Feed/ Water sampling – Feed or water samples are taken according to the V-Tech Standard Operating Procedure and sent to an accredited laboratory for testing, www.fdalab.co.za.
Residue monitoring – Tissue samples are taken according to the V-Tech SOP to ensure that the organ samples taken from the abattoirs are removed, packed, labelled and dispatched to the laboratory, www.fdalab.co.za.
With the new National Framework in place and with V-Tech’s active involvement in the ‘One Health’ approach, it seems appropriate to align our surveillance programme, The V-Tech Actif Plan, with what is proposed by the WHO. All V-Tech Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) reporting reflects both the regulations governing the MRL published levels GNR.1387 of 1999 as well as the levels of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.
The results of the residue testing are sent back to the consulting veterinarian and the intensive animal production facility. These results ensure that the final product is safe for human consumption.
