Hormonal growth stimulants deregistered for ostriches

10 October 2007

The Department of Agriculture together with the relevant pharmaceutical industry and the South African Ostrich Business Chamber, have decided to remove all claims from all hormonal growth stimulant products on ostriches. The reason for such a decision is on the basis that the EU is a major export destination for South African ostrich meat.

The EU prohibits the use of hormonal growth stimulants in animals that are slaughtered for human consumption. As a consequence, all hormonal growth stimulant products have been de-registered for use in ostriches.

All hormonal growth preparations whose package inserts have ostrich claims should be removed from the shelves with immediate effect.
