Yes. It’s safe to eat the beef from cattle fed Zilmax. More than 30 years of research and development, as well as rigorous testing, support the safety of Zilmax. The FDA reviewed this research and concluded that beef from cattle fed Zilmax is safe.1
The FDA approval consisted of a thorough human food safety review, including toxicology and other studies, which demonstrated the safety of Zilmax, when used according to label directions along with good animal care practices. The safety of Zilmax has been well documented by independent third-party scientists around the world.
How can we be confident Zilmax is safe?
"One of the things that makes Zilmax safe is that it is metabolized by the animal's system. As a result, it clears from the animal quickly and doesn't accumulate in the muscle or fat."
