The USDA said it made a mistake by approving Tyson Foods' request to label its chickens as "raised without antibiotics," and has ordered the chicken producer to stop using the labels after discovering Tyson's poultry feed contained ionophores, which the agency classifies as antibiotics. Tyson, which has invested millions of dollars on an advertising and labeling campaign, said it will appeal the decision and ask for a modified label.
