DENMARK, Copenhagen. The annual analysis carried out by the Veterinary and Food Directorate once again proves that pharmaceutical and hormone residues are not an issue in pork produced in Denmark, as regular veterinary inspections ensure, among other things, correct medication and compliance with the prescribed waiting periods and weaning periods.

According to the latest analysis by the Veterinary and Food Directorate, pork from Denmark can be enjoyed with a clear conscience, also with regard to health risks from residues.

Continuing to maintain a good course

During daily sampling at pig production and slaughter plants by the Veterinary and Food Directorate, the laboratory responsible had found only one sample from a sow - taken at a slaughter plant - out of 8000 pigs tested, in which the antibiotic limit was exceeded.

Weaning periods important

Danish pork enjoys a reputation at home and abroad for being free of antibiotic residues. Against this background, checking for compliance with weaning deadlines is crucial to maintaining high standards as a foundation for consumer confidence around the world.
