In recent weeks, the European Commission has begun a review of whether to approve a package of measures designed to help Europe’s dairy industry.
Among them are tighter requirements for the use of antibiotics and the introduction of measures to prevent outbreaks.
The European Commission said the package could be submitted to the EU’s executive committee for its consideration in the next few weeks.
It will then be presented to the European Parliament, which has to vote on the measure.
Some lawmakers in the European Union have expressed concern that the package might include restrictions on the use and distribution of antibiotics.
Some European governments have also expressed concern about the need for greater surveillance.
Some food manufacturers, like Kellogg Co, have said they are considering restricting antibiotic use and the use or supply of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in food.
