Abstract:
Antibiotics are often used for therapeutic, prophylactic, and growth-promoting purposes. Antibiotics and their metabolites can accumulate in different tissues such as muscle, liver, and kidney if they are used indiscriminately. Consumption of treated bird meat during the withdrawal phase will expose customers to health risks such as antibiotic resistance. The present study was carried out to develop a simple and sensitive method for the determination of oxytetracycline (OTC) residue in poultry meat. The present study was aimed to assess the residue level of these antibiotics in chicken meat. Chicken meat samples (including muscle, liver, kidney and fat) from poultry farms and retail market were collected. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) was used for screening of OTC. The analysis revealed that 18.89 % meat samples were positive for OTC. Out of it, 33.33 % samples were having concentration above the MRL for OTC. So it can be concluded that the usage of OTC in chicken lead contamination of meat if withdrawal period of drug not following and it may cause resistance in consumers and seems to be a public health threat.
