Madrid: Spanish researchers have developed a fast and precise method to flag tiny amounts of drugs present in milk powder and meat-based baby food.Antibiotics, such as tilmicosine, or antiparasitic drugs, such as levamisole, are given to livestock in order to avoid illness, but they can remain later in food."The concentrations detected have been generally very low. On one hand, this suggests they are not worrying amounts, on the other hand, it shows the need to control these products to guarantee food safety," Antonia Garrido, professor of analytical chemistry, University of Almeria, was quoted as saying in the journal Food Chemistry.
